Just a quick note
Archbishop Sérgio called me last Friday. After I got over the initial shock, and then a little small talk, he told me he had prepared a letter stating that he has accepted me in the Archdiocese of Brasília. He apologized for taking so long, and that he wasn't quite sure who he was supposed to send it to. In the end, he addressed it to Fr Alvaro. I received confirmation from the LC's in Rome that that was OK.
I picked the letter up on Tuesday, and sent it on to Rome that same afternoon. I added a copy of my letter to the Holy Father asking for dispensation from the evangelical counsels, a letter I had already sent to the Holy Father with a copy to the legionaries. The LC's lost my copy. Nothing new under the sun. I know my letter to the Holy Father arrived because I received a confirmation from Bishop Joseph Tobin of the Congregation for Religious.
I am hoping that the rest of the process won't take too long. I have been out of the legion for two years, have been installed as pastor of a parish in the Archdiocese for one and a half. Hopefully the Holy See will take this into account and expedite my process.
