Today, the United States celebrates the World Day of Consecrated Life.
In an article in the The Boston Pilot, a Sister reflected on what it means to be consecrated to Christ:
Consecrated Life is a witness to generous Gospel dedication.
The Consecrated Life is a witness to the promise of eternal life…that God indeed will have the last word in our lives.
The Consecrated Life strives to mirror the compassionate heart of Christ.
The vows of poverty, chastity and obedience proclaim to the world that there is something more to life than materialism and success. Only God can satisfy the deepest longings of our hearts.
THROUGH OUR PRAYERS, MAY WE BE BLESSED WITH THESE FRUITFUL VOCATIONS!
