A brief explanation

For our first post, we thought it best to explain the name of our blog. It was borrowed from the founder of a lay movement called Regnum Christi, of which we are members. In addition to founding Regnum Christi, Father Maciel (below) also founded an order of priests in 1941, the Legionaries of Christ. There are currently about 700 ordained Legionaries spread throughout the world, and more than 2,500 seminarians. As of this date, there are roughly 70,000 lay Catholics who have incorporated into the Regnum Christi movement world-wide.

You can learn more about Regnum Christi here.

A brief time-line for a history of the Legion of Christ can be found here.
