Pope Francis asks religious to “awaken the world” during the Year of Consecrated Life

2014-11-28

The Pope wrote a letter to all religious who are preparing to celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life.

In the document, Pope Francis gives them three main goals for this year: "to be thankful for their past," "to live the present with enthusiasm" and "to embrace the future with hope." He calls on each religious order and institute to study better their charisms as well as to examine if Christ still is their "first and only love."

The Pope also reveals what he expects of this year. Above all, he wants consecrated men and women to "awaken the world,” and asks them to be happy and ready to give an answer to the challenges of society.

For example, the Pope encourages them to find out how they can help persecuted Christians worldwide. Finally, he hopes that the different religious institutes may come closer during the year.

Also, the document calls on the laity to value consecrated people in the Church.

The Year of Consecrated Life will begin on Sunday, November 30 and ends on February 2, 2016. During this time religious men and women may obtain plenary indulgence.
