September 27, 2010. The Archbishop of Valladolid, Spain, Ricardo Blázquez, will be the Apostolic visitator appointed by the Pope to investigate the Regnum Christi, the lay movement founded by Marcial Maciel.
Sources close to the Vatican have confirmed this and within the next few hours will publish an official statement.
Last year Blázquez Archbishop was one of four visitators appointed by the Pope to investigate the Legion of Christ.
To help bring order to the Legion of the Christ, Archbishop Velasio De Paolis has named four assistants: Fr Agostino Montan, Fr Mario Marchesi Agostino, Gianfranco Ghirlanda (Jesuit priest and former rector of Gregorian University), and Brian Farrell (Secretary of he Pontifical Council for Christian Unity and Legionary of Christ).
One of the main tasks of Velasio De Paolis, who currently governs the Legionaries of Christ on behalf of the Pope, will be to draft and adopt the new constitutions for the Order.
