July 12, 2010. Greenville, RI. A 3-part video interview of five members of the consecrated women of Regnum Christi conducted at Mater Ecclesiae College in Greenville, Rhode Island gives a glimpse into the private life of the nearly 900 women who have “given their lives to Christ,” as they describe. Those interviewed gave an in-depth look at their personal struggles and consolations during this challenging time for the Movement.

Nancy Nohrden, who has been consecrated for 12 years, and is now working in St. Louis, Missouri, teaching catechism at Gateway Academy, had a passionate response to the question about her call to the consecrated life. 

“Fr Maciel didn’t call me,” she said. “The consecrated (women) didn’t call me. Jesus Christ called me to give my life to him within this spiritual family."

As the consecrated women wait for Pope Benedict XVII’s next decision after the release of the May 1, 2010 communiqué stating that the Holy See will honor the consecrated women’s request to send a visitator to them as he did to the Legion of Christ, they are strengthened by prayer. 

“It is a moment of great discernment, and the whole Church is discerning with us and helping us to get through this,” said Nancy.
