Regnum Christi Identity

The Charism of Regnum Christi

The charism of Regnum Christi is a gift that God gives to the Church. It is a supernatural reality that cannot be fully explained in a definition, but we can reflect on it in order to understand it more deeply.

A charism is something alive, something that is incarnated in the people who receive it, and that unfolds in a lifestyle and a way of living a mission.

The Charism of Regnum Christi: What does Christ call us to live?

“He calls me to make his Kingdom present in the hearts of people and in society, making present the mystery of Christ, the Apostle of the Kingdom. This mystery is Jesus Christ himself who goes out to meet people, reveals the love of his heart, gathers them together, forms them as apostles and Christian leaders, and then sends and accompanies them to collaborate with him in evangelization. ”

The charism of Regnum Christi and its identity according to the Statutes has been approved by the Holy See.


What is the mystery of Christ’s life that the Regnum Christi charism springs from?

  1. The Regnum Christi Identity According to the Statutes of the Regnum Christi Federation is an essay that reflects on what it means to live a mystery of the life of Christ and make it present in the world, and about the particular mystery in Christ’s life that the Regnum Christi identity springs from. It also contains three concept maps, and an infographic.  It was created by the Life and Mission Division of the General Directorate of the Regnum Christi Federation, with the intention of helping us to go deeper in understanding the charism while praying with the Word of God. It is available in English and in Spanish.
  2. Live the Mystery of the Kingdom is a second essay that continues from The Regnum Christi Identity and focuses more 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.
  3. The Pledge of Friendship with Christ and With Each Other: ECYD The Regnum Christi Charism lived by Adolescents. In Regnum Christi we have always considered ECYD to be a part of our spiritual family. This essay, then, is directed to all of us – those who have had contact with ECYD and those who have not, or had it a long time ago – to all who want to find light in the mystery of Jesus Christ who comes out to meet us and invites us to live as his friends and apostles. In the following pages we share the thoughts of the different territories five years after the publication of the ECYD Statutes.
  4. Contemplative and Evangelizing: Apostles With the Heart of Christ addresses a charismatic trait in all Regnum Christi members, being “contemplative and evangelizing” (SRCF 20). This duality is not just one particular characteristic of the way a Regnum Christi member lives and acts among many others. It is a vital attitude that permits us to know, love, and follow Christ the Apostle and allow him to transform us.
  5. The Encounter With Christ in the Life of Regnum Christi: Identity, Foundation, and Dynamic seeks to encourage the renewed practice of the Encounter with Christ by going deeper into its essence and offering principles that allow it to be adapted to each team’s circumstances. It develops the following themes: the place of this activity in the life of Regnum Christi, its historical development and its relationship to the charism, its Biblical roots, the internal dynamic of the Encounter with Christ, and the meaning of its parts.
