Vatican publishes letter addressed to religious

2014-02-27

Pope Francis usually highlights that consecrated life is a synonym to joy. The Vatican's Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life wants that same 'joy' to play a key role next year, dedicated to religious people.

Not by chance, the Congregation published a preparatory letter titled 'Rejoice.'

MSGR. JOSÉ RODRÍGUEZ CARBALLO
Secretary, Congregation for Consecrated Life
"The joy we're talking about, and the one the title of the letter refers to, is a joy that comes from meeting Jesus. It is a joy that comes from the deep within the heart.”

This document compiles homilies and speeches Pope Francis addressed to consecrated men and women.

During the presentation, more details were given on the next Year of Consecrated Life. All its activities will share the same spirit.

MSGR. JOSÉ RODRÍGUEZ CARBALLO
Secretary, Congregation for Consecrated Life
"All activities and gatherings will be formative. And they will also celebrate. There will be a lot of activities, and more letters, but we want every religious to live it out as a year full of grace.”

The Year of Consecrated Life will start on November 2014 and will end in February 2016. One of the major events planned is a world gathering of young consecrated men and women in Rome.
