Regia / Senatus
The Regia and Senatus are very important Councils in the government of the Legion of Mary throughout the world.
Serious consideration is always given by the Concilium before this status is conferred on a council.
Approval of the Hierarchy in a particular region and the agreement of various councils which will be attached to the new body has to be obtained.
Only the Concilium meeting has the authority to confer higher status on a proposed Regia or Senatus. It has to be formally proposed and seconded at a Concilium meeting.
No person or other legion council has the authority to raise a Legion council to Regia or Senatus.
