Love for Christ Crucified, a Spirituality of God’s power and wisdom

Jesus’s death on the cross and resurrection saved the world. Therefore, we fully commit ourselves to him; seek his will in all we do; and trust in his power to do it.

“We proclaim Christ Crucified…the Power of God and the Wisdom of God” (1 Cor. 1:23-24)

We are:

Men of the Eucharist

When we celebrate the eucharist, Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross is made present to us today. Therefore we live and promote a deep reverence for our Eucharistic Lord.

Led and empowered by the Holy Spirit:

Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit with charisms (gifts) to build up the Church. And so we seek to be completely surrendered to the action of the Holy Spirit within us, and open to receiving any spiritual gifts the Lord might want to give us. 

Truly devoted to Mary

As Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother at the cross, so we consecrate ourselves entirely to him through her.

Loyal to the Magisterium

To fulfill the Father’s will, Jesus founded the Church. We are to be loyal to the Holy Father and the Magisterium of the Church (its official teaching authority), a loyalty that will be lived out in obedience to our local bishop.

 

Listen to a talk by Bishop Scott McCaig, CC titled "Christ Crucified, the Power & Wisdom of God":

 

"All I can say, what great support you have been as priests in my life. Since childhood, there are no words to describe your presence and your dedication to the Holy Eucharist which allows us to share the Body and Blood of Christ Jesus, Our Lord. I have been blessed and strengthened by so many of the priests along the way that I had met and prayed with. God is Good. May His good works continue and bless us each day on this journey to Eternal Life. Thank God for the Companions of the Cross and the men who care." — John Evans

 

"The CCs, starting with the Founder, and continuing with all those who have joined him, have left an indelible and very rich imprint on the lives of our Lobo family.  The 4 CC pillars have stood the test of time, and have been beacons for us, while we were, young and old alike, taught to be free in the Spirit, to worship the Lord as a high priority, and to take the time to learn about our rich heritage in the Catholic faith. Growth in personal holiness, inspired teachings about the Word of God, the importance of receiving the Sacraments, especially Reconciliation and the Eucharist, on a frequent basis, were thrown into bright focus.  “Commit to the Lord with all your heart; trust in Him and watch Him act” (Ps. 37) are words that echo in our minds and hearts... And so, we give thanks to the Lord with grateful hearts, for Fr. Bob and his amazing Companions – and we look forward to MORE. May they continue to be used gloriously to build His kingdom here on earth!  Amen!"
