Looking at Eternity
| MEMBERS | TESTIMONIES
I believe that it is extremely important to make use of each moment of our lives to dedicate ourselves to the things that transcend, that are eternal, God´s things.

Marcelo Margaín - colaborador
This year is a "thank you" to our Lord for the innumerable graces he has showered on me.
There are many reasons why I decided to give a year of my life to God. I am twenty-three years old and I have studied in a Legionary school my whole life, was a member of ECYD and four years ago incorporated to Regnum Christi. Even though I had a decent spiritual life and had participated in some different apostolates I still felt as if I hadn´t really done anything worthwhile for Christ, that I hadn´t truly surrendered myself. Therefore I decided to leave my family, my hometown and my friends so I could go and give the best I had to offer to our Lord, my time, a year of my life. This I believe to be truly worth it and that giving a year is something that transcends into eternity.

Another reason that I found very inspiring was the call that all Catholics have to, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations." I see this year as a "thank you" to our Lord for the innumerable graces he has showered on me: creating me, calling me to the Catholic faith, redeeming me and so many other very important personal graces in my life, such as giving me a wonderful family, excellent friends, an integral education and the gift of good health.

I believe that it is extremely important to make use of each moment of our lives to dedicate ourselves to the things that transcend, that are eternal, God´s things. We can not waste our life on worldly things that are only good for a few moments before we die. Life is so short, a blink of an eye in comparison with eternity. Therefore I am very proud and happy to be able to help our Lord in his most important work: the salvation of souls.
