Where do Legion/RC members go if Rome reconstitutes?

| No Comments

Several readers have asked where I see Legion of Christ/ Regnum Christi members going if the Holy See reconstitutes the Legion under new leadership, as growing rumors suggest. The answer is long and complicated. Which is why we should all be grateful to Eric Sammons for tackling it.

Observing the experience of another movement that went through something similar, Monsieur Sammons sees four possible paths for former members:

  1. They remained in the reconstituted organization.
  2. They formed a new organization under the ousted leadership and outside of Church oversight.
  3. They left the group and returned to their parishes.
  4. They left the group and the Church.

This is my experience as well. Thus I highly recommend you read Eric's post, which you can access here.
