Path to Union
Love Crucified is a Catholic covenant community of men and women of all states of life, founded in 3/11/2008. The Lord has called us to be one with His crucified love (Cf. Gal 2:20) by entering the Simple Path to Union He has given us. In this path Mary guides us to kiss the Lord's feet at the Cross; to enter His Crucified love, into His Sacred Heart which is ablaze with the fire of the Holy Spirit; unto union with the Trinity. This is the wisdom of the Cross which is love. "For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God" -1 Corinthians 1:18

What we mean by "Love Crucified"

Our vocation is summed up in His call: "Suffer all with Me, no longer two but one, in My sacrifice of love" (Cf. Eph 2:13-14).

Ordinary Life; Hidden Force

Most members live in their homes with their family. Often only one member of the family is in Love Crucified, but the entire family is blessed because the community upholds and respects the sanctity and integrity of the family.

Our ordinary lives united with Christ are a hidden force of victim souls, called to hasten a new Pentecost and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as promised by our Blessed Mother in Fatima. 

We offer our lives for the sanctification of all, specially for priests. "I want souls who are dedicated with fervor, with determination and without looking for rest, to plead day and night for My priests" - Jesus to Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida.

Spiritual Family
Through our covenant we enter a spiritual family, to love and support each other in Christ (Cf. Jn 17:14-26; Eph 2:13-21). We are in USA (11 states) and Colombia, but members may live in any part of the world. Members may be geographically dispersed, but the Holy Spirit unites us through our commitment to live our covenant and way of life. We meet in weekly cenacles which may be joined via Internet or phone; monthly spiritual accompaniment and a yearly community retreat.  

Way of Life
Before entering our covenant, we take an oath of fidelity to the Catholic Church. We strive to follow a way of life based on the Gospel, to sanctify every aspect of our lives, including the little things, which, once joined to Christ with sacrificial love, have power beyond measure.

The Lord has called us to be His little mustard seed; consolers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary; contemplatives of the Eucharist and the Cross and an oasis for the suffering Hearts.

We consecrate our lives to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We pray and dispose ourselves for the grace of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon us and upon the Church, so that we can renounce to the mindset of the world and live a new life in Christ. We seek the Holy Spirit's guidance, actions and gifts.

Love Crucified was founded on March 11, 2008, that is exaclty 80 years after the Lord told Conchita: "It is my desire that the universe be consecrated to the Divine Spirit that He may spread Himself over the earth in a new Pentecost" (Diary, March 11, 1928).  

We have many patron saints

Jesus told Ven. Conchita:
Give Me souls who love Me in suffering, who find their joy on the Cross. My Heart thirsts for such a love, an unselfish love, an expiatory, crucified love, a sound love such as it may be said no longer exists on earth. Yet it is the only true love, the love which saves, purifies, and the love I require through My commandments. All other apparent loves do not satisfy Me; all other love is vain, artificial, often culpable, save the love which I have just shown you. -Conchita´s diary.

Benedict XVI
"Christian life consists in living fully the grace of baptism in the total gift of self to the Love of the Father, to live like Christ, in the fire of the Holy Spirit, his very love for others" >>

Benedict XVI: "It is not an idea or a strategy that unites us but love of Christ and his Holy Spirit. The effectiveness of our service to the Church, the Bride of Christ, depends essentially on this, on our fidelity to the divine kingship of CRUCIFIED LOVE" >> 

Benedict XVI: The verbs 'to love' and 'to give' indicate a decisive and definitive act that expresses the radicalism with which God approached man in love, to the total gift, to the threshold of our ultimate solitude, throwing himself into the abyss of our extreme abandonment, passing through the door of death,.....And precisely by faith in the superabundant love that has been given to us in Christ Jesus, we know that even the smallest force of love is greater than the greatest destructive force and can transform the world. -XI-4-2010.

St. Ignatius of Antioch, disciple of St. John, in his letter to the Christians of Rome, around 100 AD, as he was being taken to martyrdom at Rome, expresses the same fire of the Spirit:
"
My love has been crucified and there is in me no fire of material love, but rather a living water, speaking in me and saying within me, ‘Come to the Father.’ I take no pleasure in corruptible food or in the delights of this life. I want the bread of God" 

You will find more on our spirituality and vision throughout this website.  

May the Lord bless you with His crucified love!

On the mission of the laity -Catechism #900
Since, like all the faithful, lay Christians are entrusted by God with the apostolate by virtue of their Baptism and Confirmation, they have the right and duty, individually or grouped in associations, to work so that the divine message of salvation may be known and accepted by all men throughout the earth. This duty is the more pressing when it is only through them that men can hear the Gospel and know Christ. Their activity in ecclesial communities is so necessary that, for the most part, the apostolate of the pastors cannot be fully effective without it. Cf. LG 33.

Our gratitude to His Eminence Mauro Cardinal Piacenza
Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy

His Eminence's support for spiritual motherhood for priests has been an inspiration to us. On May 7, 2013, upon hearing of our ministry to priests, he granted us an audience in which he encouraged us in our vocation.

1- Love Crucified is presently in USA (Florida, Georgia, Maryland, South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kansas, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Rhode Island) and Colombia. In some of those states there is only one member. Members can be anywhere in the world since our unity is not based on geography but in the call to live as one heart the way of life explained in the Path to Union.
2- Victims Souls: We understand this as St.Therese de Lisieux and Ven. Conchita did: To be one with Christ in His oblation of love to the Father for all. This is explained in the Path to Union.

Benedict XVI
"it is not an idea or a strategy that unites us but love of Christ and his Holy Spirit. The effectiveness of our service to the Church, the Bride of Christ, depends essentially on this, on our fidelity to the divine kingship of CRUCIFIED LOVE" >>  - Benedict XVI
