What is the mystery of Christ’s life that the Regnum Christi charism springs from? Live the Mystery of the Kingdom: Make it Present in Your Heart, in Other People’s Hearts, and in Society is a new essay that continues from The Regnum Christi Identity. Both were written by the Regnum Christi General Directorate’s Division of Life and Mission.
Live the Mystery of the Kingdom focuses specifically on the mission of making the Kingdom present in one’s own life, in the hearts of others and in society. It includes workshops and questions for reflection that help us understand how to live this mystery concretely. It’s available in English and in Spanish.
“This goal of this essay is to dive deeper into the mystery of the Kingdom of Christ to help us better live our identity as Regnum Christi members. It is part of a project undertaken by the Regnum Christi Federation General Directorate’s Area of Life and Mission to promote the deep knowledge and heartfelt assimilation of the charism based on the Statutes as a pathway of spiritual and apostolic renewal. Besides producing content such as this essay, we will also seek to offer in-depth conferences and other support tools for use at the territorial and local level.
In the first essay, published for the feast of Christ the King in 2019, the theme was “Living and Making Present the Mystery of Christ” from the perspective of Christ the Apostle ‘who goes out to people, reveals the love of his heart to them, gathers them together and forms them as apostles and Christian leaders, sends them out and accompanies them as they collaborate in the evangelization of people and of society.’ (SRCF 8) With this second essay we want to focus on what moved Christ to go out to meet and form apostles: establishing the ‘Kingdom of God.’ As Regnum Christi members we want to collaborate with Christ so this Kingdom becomes present ‘in the hearts of all people and in society.’ (SRCF 7)”
