Rome, Italy, Nov 8, 2020 / 07:00 am (CNA).- The Order of Malta elected Fra’ Marco Luzzago as the Lieutenant of the Grand Master on Nov. 8. to serve a one year term amid the order’s constitutional reform.

Luzzago will lead the nearly 1000-year-old institution until another election will take place next year to select the order’s Grand Master, a position that is traditionally held for life.

Founded in Jerusalem in the year 1048, the Sovereign Order of Malta today operates mainly in the field of medical and humanitarian assistance as a primary body of international law and a lay Catholic religious order.
