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
Whenever Frank Duff spoke and priests were present he would invariably begin by acknowledging their presence and thanking them. This was not just a polite formality or a form of obsequiousness but the expression of a profound reverence for the priesthood deeply rooted in his faith and theological reflection.

He saw his own vocation as a layperson and the innermost reality of the Legion of Mary as intrinsically and therefore inseparably related to the vocation of the priest. And, vice versa, he saw the vocation of the priest, although different in kind, as essentially related to the vocation of the laity. Together he saw them as the divinely planned way of the most authentic and effective evangelisation.
