Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

2014-01-06

Wednesday, January 8, will the start of a new, decisive chapter for the Legionaries of Christ. After three years revising their charism, they must approve a new constitution and choose new leadership to effectively put an end to the era of founder Marcial Maciel.

The Vatican's papal delegate Velasio de Paolis convoked the Chapter in October. He oversees the Legion since July 2010, after the Vatican uncovered the scandalous double life Maciel led.

Their meetings will begin on January 8 with a Mass at the congregation's headquarters in Rome. Sixty-one priests will take part in the Chapter General. Nearly two-thirds of them were elected to represent their territories.

During the first few sessions, Velasio de Paolis will present his report on the Legionaries of Christ. The next people to speak will be Sylvester Heereman, acting general director, as well as the territorial directors. Elections for the new general director will begin on January 20.

The Order was founded on January 3, 1941, in Mexico. Their goal is to "extend the Kingdom of God in society, according to the demands of Christian charity and justice.” They have over 2,800 members, across 22 countries.

The new leadership will dictate what path the Legionaries of Christ will set on, in the coming years.
