Wake Up The World! – 2015 Year of Consecrated Life

Visitation Province

In February 2013, Pope Francis promulgated 2015 as the Year of Consecrated Life with these words: “…awaken the world with the passion of your charisms and your mission…”

The Year of Consecrated Life will begin on the First Sunday of Advent, November 29, 2014, and end on February 2, 2016. The year also marks the 50th anniversary of Perfectae Caritas, a decree on religious life, and Lumen Gentium, the second Vatican Council’s constitution on the church. The purpose of this Year is to “make grateful remembrance of the recent past” while embracing “the future with hope.”

Many events are being planned in dioceses across the country and we are also being invited to be creative about ways to celebrate this special time wherever we are. As CND sisters and associates we could enter this year through the lens of our Congregation Mission Orientation and our Province Direction Statement.

 One resource available on-line is the Letter entitled “Be Glad!” published in preparation for this Year.

“The one who is mindful of God, who is guided by the memory of God in her entire life is able to awaken that memory in the hearts of others.”
