A suffering that purifies

· Cardinal De Paolis opens the Extraordinary General Chapter of the Legionaries of Christ ·

An “examination of life” on the past, a verification of the path chosen, which is not without a penitential dimension; the appointment of new superiors; revision of the constitution which will be presented to Pope Francis for final approval. 

These are the three crucial moments in the Extraordinary General Chapter of the Legionaries of Christ, which began on 8 January with a Mass celebrated by the papal delegate Cardinal Velasio De Paolis.

The papal delegate repeated the words 'confidence' and 'faithful' in his homily, to note the important progress that has been made so far and to offer encouragement for the steps that must be made. “You have suffered a great deal”, the Cardinal said to the priests “both internally and externally. You have suffered the shame of being accused, eyed with suspicion... You were able to accept this suffering out of love for your vocation, and out of love for the Church and for the Legion”.
