The Joy Of Following Christ

The Church needs to make known the great gospel values of which she is the bearer. No one witnesses more effectively to these values than those who profess the consecrated life in chastity, poverty and obedience, in a total gift of self to God and in complete readiness to serve humanity and society after the example of Christ.

-Saint John Paul II, Redemptoris Missio

This month, Pope Francis asks us to pray for all of our religious, that in this Year of Consecrated Life, “religious men and women may rediscover the joy of following Christ and strive to serve the poor with zeal.” Let us join him in praying for all consecrated religious.
