Father Jorge, what are your main apostolates within Regnum Christi?
My passion has always been forming and accompanying young adults with their difficulties, dreams, and struggles. I live for them. They are the children that I did not naturally have. I also love their parents because I see their worries when they see the world confusing their children’s minds and hearts. I also run the international office of a retreat called Search and a digital evangelization platform called New Fire Evangelization.
Why do you love being a priest?
I love being a priest because I get to help Jesus tap into the lives of people who need someone to listen to them and care about them. I also love being a priest because it seems that you live a life always in touch with life and death, love and deception, certainty and faith. It is a true privilege that I don’t have the holiness to appreciate enough. But after some purification, I will understand that I won something much bigger than the lottery.
