Pope Francis announced that 2015 will be dedicated to consecrated life.
His message to consecrated people is consistent with the message he has been delivering since his papacy began. He called them to “go out to frontiers, working first and foremost with people excluded from society … to avoid hypocrisy and clericalism and to develop a tender heart.”
This message is not just for the consecrated, but for all of us. It is a call to convert the world and to begin that work by following Christ in our own lives.
