Jesus-Centered Institute, LLC and Dialog International Press, LLC are founded by Biblical scholar, genetic historian, & writer, Romuald B. Simeone. He is our main writer, together with psychologist/author, Chiara Simeone-DiFrancesco, Ph.D. We have been supported and commissioned by the late †Tomas. A. Clavel Mendez, Archbp., former Hispanic Vicar for Orange County, CA
Our motto is “All and Only Jesus!” ….”PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT!” AS POPE PAUL VI STATED: “JESUS, THE ONLY WAY!” We are ecumenical and base ourselves on the basic Gospel model and message.
Our goal is the saving of souls and the full cooperation with the Kingdom of God through evangelization, discipleship, witnessing and the promotion of Christian marriage and family life.
This is accomplished through “SSS”, the three s’s of:
- Saving Lives (we are prolife)
- Saving Souls (we witness)
- Saving Marriages (we teach marriage rebuilding)
We produce books, provide mentoring and pastoral counseling, give lectures and presentations through a variety of media and in person. In addition we evangelize directly: daily witnessing Jesus one-on-one with people we encounter, face to face, through telephone & email.
Also featuring Dr. Chiara Simeone-DiFrancesco is a licensed Christian psychologist and practicing Schema Therapist. She has also been trained in religious studies and philosophy earning a double B.A. degree from Holy Apostles College, Cromwell, CT., graduating Magna Cum Laude with honors.

She is the co-author of: Schema Therapy with Couples, A Practitioner’s Guide to Healing Relationships, published by Wiley-Blackwell, July 2015.
Special mention is made of †Tomas A. Clavel Mendez, Archbishop Emeritus of Panama who has been a special instrument of God in inspiring the writing and development of this ministry. A psychologist himself and leader of hundreds of thousands, his saintly love and encouragement has written upon the hearts of the authors, with the pen of the Spirit. In 2018, we celebrated 30 years since his patronage from earth lifted the veil to the same from heaven.
