CONSECRATED LIFE: LIGHT, PROPHECY, WISDOM OF THE CHURCH

VIS news – Holy See Press Office: CONSECRATED LIFE: LIGHT, PROPHECY, WISDOM OF THE CHURCH.

The Feast of the Presentation also marks the World Day of Prayer for those in Consecrated Life: brothers, sisters, monks, nuns, consecrated virgins, those in Third Orders, etc.  The above link to the Vatican Information Services blog gives the Holy Father’s reflections on this day and his encouragement for those in Consecrated Life to continue their witness to Christ in their own particular way.

As a side note, ‘Consecrated Life’ is a broader term than ‘Religious Life,’ as the former encompasses those who are in a conscrated lay state outside of a religious community.  Religious Communities operate under an approved rule of life, which does not always apply, at least as strictly, as those in consecrated life.
