About the Year of Consecrated Life

Pope Francis proclaimed 2015 a Year of Consecrated Life, starting on the First Sunday of Advent and ending on February 2, 2016, the World Day of Consecrated life. The year also marks the 50th anniversary of Perfectae Caritatis, a decree on religious life, and Lumen Gentium, the Second Vatican Council’s constitution on the Church.

Cardinal João Braz De Aviz, Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, remarked, “We are convinced that in these 50 years [since the Second Vatican Council], consecrated life has undertaken a fruitful journey of renewal — not free, certainly, of difficulties and hardships — in the commitment to follow what the Council asked of the consecrated: fidelity to the Lord, to the Church, to their own charism and to the people of today.”

The Year of Consecrated Life will have three objectives, to remember the past with gratitude, to embrace the future with hope, and to live in the present with passion. Highlighting the many types of religious vocations within the Church, this year will be an opportunity to evangelize and spread the joy that comes with a life given fully to Christ.
