Consecrated women religious by their lives witness the joy of eternal union with God. Freed from earthly cares, they more fully manifest the Kingdom of God to all Christians. The structure of the vowed life frees consecrated women religious to live entirely for God and others.
Their prayer, community, and mission speak eloquently of a wholehearted response to God’s overwhelming love and care. Through their lives of service they make the presence of Jesus visible in a world desperately in need of faith, hope, and love. They are called to be icons, transparent images of the Triune God.
“The consecrated life thus becomes one of the tangible seals which the Trinity impresses upon history, so that people can sense with longing the attraction of divine beauty” (Vita Consecrata, 20).
