A marist Brother in the Congregation for Institutes of Consacrated Life

29/09/2006: Brazil

For the third consecutive five-year term, Brother Claudino Falchetto has been appointed by the Apostolic See as a Consulter of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, whose headquarters are in Rome. This Congregation is the Roman Dicastery which accompanies the consecrated life in the world and watches over its interest, representing it before the organisation of the Church.
The activities of a Roman Dicastery are multiple and extensive, since they look after not only ecclesiastical structures but also the animation and the accompaniment of consecrated life in the world. In general, the personnel of the Roman Congregations has been reduced and the volume of the work is very large. That is why the Holy Father, through the government mechanisms of the Church, periodically appoints Consulters for the different Congregations.
A Consulter is a person, recognised in the Congregation in question or Dicastery, who rends services as an advisor, in accord with the requests that come from these organisations. These services consist of giving opinions on religious texts, works or documents, as well as the preliminary study of documents which need to be compared with the different realities of religious life in the world.
Brother Claudino, who has already lived for eight years in Rome as a member of the General Council of the Marist Institute, has given this Roman organisation these services as an advisor which have qualified him for another five-year term as Consulter.
We congratulate him for the confidence that he has acquired and confirmed for such a long time.
