Press Release: Conclusion of the Extraordinary General Assembly
Extraordinary General Assembly of Regnum Christi
PART 2: December 6, 2018 - Day 9
Regnum Christi chooses to govern itself collegially and to allow lay members to participate by right with a consultative voice and vote.
Regnum Christi asks the Holy See to be canonically established as a federation formed and governed collegially with the Legionaries of Christ, the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi and the Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi, with a consultative vote for the laity, who are individually associated with the Regnum Christi Federation.
The Statutes of the Regnum Christi Federation will be delivered to the Holy See so that the corresponding ecclesiastical authorities can assess them and request the amendments that they consider necessary in view of its final approval.
Regnum Christi is formed by the Legionaries of Christ, the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi, the Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi, and the Lay Members of Regnum Christi. The Statutes presented to the Holy See for approval express the meeting point that these four vocations have discerned together with regard to their charism and common mission, spirituality, members, organization, and government.
During the last eight years of renewal guided by the Holy See, the Legionaries of Christ have elaborated new Constitutions, the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi and the Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi have been canonically recognized as Societies of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right with their respective Constitutions, and the laity have prepared their Rule of Life, a secondary code that depends on the Statutes that will be sent to the Holy See for approval.
The supreme governing bodies of the three consecrated vocations (the General Chapter of the Legionaries of Christ and the General Assemblies of the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi and of the Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi), have ratified their desire to establish the Regnum Christi Federation, as well as the Statutes that will be delivered to the Holy See for its consideration and final approval.
The path of renewal has been a participatory and global process in which, over the course of eight years since 2010, all the members of Regnum Christi from the four vocations have been able to participate, some 22,000 from among the Legionaries of Christ, Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi, Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi, and Lay Members of Regnum Christi.
