Path to Union
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 (domestic church). 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.
Way of Life
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:
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:

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.
