Proposal to Raise Vishakapatnam Comitium to Regia (India)
March 2017

PROPOSAL TO RAISE VISHAKAPATNAM COMITIUM TO REGIA (INDIA)
A proposal was put forward to elevate Vishakapatnam Comitium to Regia status. The Regia would govern the Legion in its own Archdioceses as well as in the Dioceses of Eluru, Guntur, Nellore, Srikakulam and Vijayawada. All councils were consulted and gave agreement.
The Regia will comprise 20 directly affiliated praesida, 6 directly affiliated Curiae, 2 Comitia, 16 Curiae and 37 distant praesidia. The aim is to form more Curiae and Comitia and to attach distant praesidia to councils more adjacent to them or form some of them into Curiae. Most of the existing councils have too many praesidia currently attached. Ecclesiastical permission has been given by the Archbishop of Vishakapatnam.
The submission was proposed and seconded and the Concilium body gave its approval

Quote of the Day
Mary’s great hymn of joy, the Magnificat, which is inspired by numerous Old Testament passages, especially the song of Hannah (1 Sam 2:1-10), celebrates the goodness and mercy of God to individuals and to Israel as a whole, emphasising that God comes to the help of the poor and simple, rather than to the proud and self-sufficient.

When we pray the Magnificat, especially in the Evening Prayer of the Church, we too, like Mary, recall the great deeds that God has done in history and in our own lives. As we treasure these things in our hearts, may we, like Mary, be inspired once again to tell everyone of the hope and the joy that is ours.
Monsignor Joseph Murphy, Secretariate of State, Vatican
