Prot. n. R. 111 1 /2004


The Regnum Christi Movement is the specific instrument of apostolate of the Legion of Christ, with which it is indivisibly united. Its purpose is to establish the Kingdom of Christ among all people by the growth in holiness of its members in whatever state and condition in life God has called them to, and through individual and organized apostolate at the service of the Church and her shepherds. With the guidance and spiritual support of the Legionaries of Christ, Movement members -in the full exercise of their freedom- join together to help each other fulfill their baptismal commitments.

Its specific charism is the same as the Legion of Christ´s and consists in knowing, living and proclaiming the commandment of love that Jesus Christ the Redeemer came to bring us by his incarnation. Indeed, the work that the Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi Movement members undertake in building a civilization of Christian justice and love is well-known.

The founder of the Legion of Christ and of Regnum Christi presented to the Apostolic See the Statutes of the Regnum Christi Movement of apostolate and requested their definitive approval. The Supreme Pontiff, with fatherly affection, has accepted this petition and by his supreme authority has approved the Statutes.

The Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, informed by the Secretariat of State (in Prot. N. 568.021) of this approval, by this present Decree makes it public and known to all.

An original copy of the text of the Statutes, in Spanish, is kept in the archive of this Dicastery.

The Apostolic See warmly recommends that these Statutes, faithfully followed by Regnum Christi Movement members, be a further effective means to extend the Kingdom of Christ in the world.

Nothing to the contrary withstanding.

Given in Rome, November 26, 2004
