Christi is an apostolic movement at the service of mankind
and the Church. It shares the charism of the priestly
congregation, the Legionaries of Christ. Its current membership consists
of about 21,500 youths, adults, deacons, and priests and 10,000
in the Conquest and Challenge clubs for boys and girls,
in more than 30 countries.
In November 2004, the Holy
See granted definitive approval to the Statutes of the
Regnum Christi Apostolic Movement. The text of the decree explains
that its mission is "to establish the Kingdom of Christ
in the world through the sanctification of its members in
the individual state of life to which each one is
called by God, and through individual and organized apostolic action
at the service of the Church and its pastors […].
Its specific charism is the same as that of the
Legion of Christ: to know, live, and preach the commandment
of love that Christ the Redeemer gave us through his
Incarnation." In this way, the Vicar of Christ confirmed the
identity and charism of Regnum Christi.
Regnum Christi is precisely
this: a movement for apostolate, a movement for evangelization. It
is a movement in which each member has decided to
take seriously and responsibly the great missionary commandment that Christ
gave to all those who call ourselves his followers. The
Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi members want to preach
the Gospel fearlessly throughout the world, supported by the omnipotence
of God and by the word of Christ who said:
“I will be with you until the end of the
Regnum Christi fosters a deep ecclesial and missionary spirit
in its members. As a dynamic organization, it strengthens their
spirit of initiative and reminds them of their baptismal responsibility
to make the faith the engine of their daily life
in their personal, family, parish, professional, and social circles.
