Christ and the Regnum Christi Movement, is an online Catholic
community aimed at evangelizing and building up the Kingdom of
Christ through media, information sharing, and online interactive tools.
thanks to a partnership between the two web-based apostolates, video

multimedia resources even more accessible to Catholics who are searching
for materials that are faithful to the Magisterium of the
Mini-movies for Formation, Inspiration, and Evangelization
