Called to consecrated life

The Catholic Church celebrates the World Day for Consecrated Life every year on February 2nd, the feast of the Presentation of the Lord, also known as Candlemas, or the feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The day of prayer was established by Pope John Paul II in 1997.

Pope Francis said the mission of consecrated men and women is enriched by the unique charisms of their communities, in addition to the fundamental gift they have each received.

“In their stupendous variety, [charisms] are all given for the edification of the Church and for its mission,” he said. “All charisms are for mission, and they are precisely so with the incalculable richness of their variety; so that the Church can witness and proclaim the Gospel to all and in every situation.”

“Let a song of thanksgiving rise from our lips and from our hearts, today and always, because Jesus has given us the grace to follow him in the various forms of consecrated life, despite our littleness”.

Let Us Pray

For those who have responded to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to be a consecrated person: that they may experience the support of the Church as they continue their growth in holiness.

We pray for those who are consecrated to God by the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience: May they always reveal the love of Christ to those they encounter and continue to enrich our world by their dedicated lives of prayer.

We pray for all those who are discerning their vocation in life, particularly those whom the Lord is calling to consecrated life: May they be given the wisdom to hear God’s call and the courage to respond generously.

For all those who are called to the consecrated life: may they be faithful witnesses of God’s love.
