"It is Jesus who you are looking for when you dream of happiness. It is Jesus who inspires you to do something great with your lives, to long for an ideal, to reject mediocrity, to bravely commit, with humility and perseverance, to improve yourselves and society, making it stronger and more fraternal" (John Paul II, World Youth day, 2000, Rome).
How many times have you asked yourself why is there so much suffering in the world?
How many times have you asked your friends how it was possible that so many people still do not know our Lord Jesus Christ?
Haven´t you ever felt you had to do something about it?
If you want to be a living witness of the Gospel... If you think that people need answers and not just words... If you are willing to give time to help others... If you want to be part of the solution that the world needs...
… then, accept the challenge to join those who are doing something to change the world!
The Regnum Christi Movement offers you the opportunity to do something more for the Church and for
souls as a RC Mission Corps volunteer. There are many young men and women today taking up the challenge, tackling the needs of the Church and the world. They are striving not only to give an answer but to be an answer.
Joining the RC Mission Corps is one way to commit yourself to "build up the Church"; it is an opportunity to fulfill the commission Christ gave his followers before he ascended to the Father: "Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation" (Mt 28:19).
Who is a RC Mission Corps volunteer?
RC Mission Corps volunteers are young Regnum Christi members who dedicate one to three years of their lives to full-time apostolic work wherever the Church most needs them, as a particular way to love Christ and bring others to love him more. Each volunteer participates in an apostolate that is both suited to his talents and effective in achieving the goal of bringing Christ to every person, of every age and in every walk of life.
RC Mission Corps volunteers generally live in a Regnum Christi center. There they receive ongoing formation to be Christ’s true apostles, as described below. Prayer and
apostolate allow them to receive a genuine and intimate experience of God that will impact the rest of their lives, teaching them to always put God first.
It takes generosity and sacrifice to live as a volunteer, but it also brings great satisfaction and joy. You try to love God, he challenges you to put your selfishness aside, and he blesses you with happiness in return.
The volunteer´s spiritual life is focused on a deep and personal experience of God, growing in personal knowledge of him and a desire to bring him to others, thus making St. Paul´s expression your own: "Woe to me if I do not proclaim the Gospel" (I Cor. 9:16).
