World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life

World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life

Begun in 1997 by Pope John Paul II, the World Day for Consecrated Life was intended to serve three purposes

• to praise the Lord and thank him for the great gift of consecrated life

• to promote a knowledge of and esteem for the consecrated life by the entire People of God

• to allow those in consecrated life to celebrate together the marvels which the Lord has accomplished in them, to discover by a more illumined faith the rays of divine beauty spread by the Spirit in their way of life and to acquire a more vivid consciousness of their irreplaceable mission in the Church and in the world

It serves an opportunity to highlight the extraordinary contributions of men and women religious as well as a time to pray for vocations to the consecrated life.

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
