Manila, Philippines - On
November 25th, the Solemnity of Christ the King, the Regnum
Christi Movement of the Philippines celebrated its feast day and
its 10th anniversary in a very special way.
A Mass held at the
St. Joseph the Worker Chapel at the Meralco Complex was
celebrated by 7 priests. Fr. Luis Garza was the main
celebrant, joined by Fr. Jose Felix Ortega and the Manila-based
Legionaries of Christ: Fr. Michael Shannon, Fr. Eric Nielsen, Fr.
Duc Bui, and Fr. Hieu Ngyuen. The young men from
Knights of the Altar assisted as altar servers at the
Mass, a crowd of 400 people made their way to
a festive banquet hall, complete with themed tables that represented
various Regnum Christi apostolates such as Everest Academy, Mano Amiga,
Challenge, Pure Fashion, Conquest, Knights of the Altar, Bistro 3846,
with a community blessing followed by a simple video presentation
prepared by the young women´s team showing Regnum Christi history
a special showing of the film For Greater Glory capped
the celebrations. Popcorn flowed and spirits were high. It was
an inspiring and well-spent day. The Regnum Christi movement of
the Philippines has much to be thankful for, having grown
by leaps and bounds within the last decade. This is
a true testament to God´s Providence and faithfulness to his
people who strive to love, build and serve the Church.
Viva Cristo Rey!
