RC Lay Consecrated Men


We have been called by Christ to be with Him and extend His Kingdom with a burning apostolic soul.

The three dimensions that constitute our vocation,being lay, consecrated, and belonging to Regnum Christi, determine our way of following and identifying with Christ, consecrated to the Father and His apostle in the world, proclaiming the Kingdom with his words, work, and the offering of his own life.


From our vocation as lay consecrated men

Spiritual Life

The motivation to cultivate a strong interior life aims at conforming ourselves to Christ. Our spiritual life consists of cultivating friendship with Him. Spiritual life is not limited to or exhausted by the fulfillment of a series of devotional practices.

Therefore, we propose and seek a spirituality that is both contemplative and evangelizing, founded on love for Christ, Mary, our neighbors, the Church, and Regnum Christi.


We seek to nurture a theological life

Contemplative and evangelizing

  • Contemplative, because we strive to be men of interior life, lovers of prayer, silence, and reflection, in order to prioritize God’s action in our own sanctification and in our apostolic work;
  • Evangelizing, because the experience of Christ’s love, who calls us to share in His mission, generates a burning desire to respond decisively as passionate apostles of the Lord.
  • As lay consecrated men, apostles in the secular world, we seek to  integrate the means of spiritual growth with our apostolic commitments, study, necessary rest, and other dimensions of life.


From the perspective of our vocation as lay consecrated men

Spiritual virtues

The following of Christ is animated and sustained by the action of the Holy Spirit. We nurture the theological virtues, particularly living out the evangelical charity. Likewise, we strive to live in communion with God and with our brothers and sisters, rooted in the Eucharist and with a special awareness of time as a received gift, making the Kingdom of Christ present here and now. Other virtues that are an essential part of our spirituality include humility, sincerity, and human and social virtues.

Our patron saint  is St. Paul, a model of imitation to Christ and a passionate apostle of evangelization. We entrust our lives and actions to the maternal protection and intercession of the Virgin Mary.

“The members of the Society [of Apostolic Life] live the spirit of Regnum Christi from their vocation as lay consecrated men. They take Jesus Christ as their criterion, center, and model. They live the mystery of Christ, consecrated to the Father and close to their brothers and sisters, as one of his people, proclaiming the Kingdom to them with their words and the offering of their lives.” CLCMRC 10
