Interview with Archbishop O?Brien by John Allen

Email sent to Regnum Christi Members in Baltimore by Legion of Christ Superior
Dear Regnum Christi members of the Archdiocese of Baltimore,
It was a joy to meet with our General Director, Fr Alvaro Corcuera, at Our Lady of Bethesda last Wednesday night. I can?t tell you how moved he was to meet all the wonderful families of the Regnum Christi of the Baltimore and D.C. area. The next day our community had lunch with him and he couldn?t stop talking about the love and great spirit that he encountered among all of you.
I wanted to mention to you that on Friday Fr Alvaro had a good meeting with Archbishop O’Brien. They had a fruitful and substantive discussion that laid down the groundwork for the Legion’s continued ministry in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. They were able to clarify issues and came up with concrete points that we will work on. I was told by Fr Parker, the Archbishop’s secretary that it would be fine to share this letter with you, so you will find it in the attached PDF file. You will see in reading it that there have been serious issues regarding the Legion?s work. We are grateful for the opportunity to address these matters. I would hope that all Regnum Christi members will also see this as an occasion to love and serve the Church.
I look forward to supporting the Archbishop?s efforts to spread the Gospel in this great and historic Archdiocese. Please continue to pray for Archbishop O’Brien and Fr Alvaro, that the Lord may bless them abundantly for the tremendous leadership they give to us.
