23 OCT: Consecrated Life – A Living Tradition within the Church
October 23, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - October 26, 2015 @ 2:00 pm€210
Pope Francis named this year as a Year of Consecrated Life. He invites the whole church to reflect on and come to appreciate the charisms of this ecclesial lifestyle. Marking the fiftieth anniversary of Perfectæ Caritatis, Vatican II’s document on religious life, this weekend directed by Brian O’Leary SJ offers an opportunity to take up, thoughtfully and prayerfully, the Pope’s call. Using insights from the Bible, the history of religious life, and its underlying theology, we will explore the sources of the passion and commitment that religious life, at its best, has always embodied. In this way we will be able to embrace an uncertain future with hope.
