Consecrated Life: A Living Exegesis

“Consecrated persons, by virtue of their consecration, ‘follow the Lord in a special way, in a prophetic way’. They are called to recognize the signs of God’s presence in daily life and wisely to discern the questions posed to us by God and the men and women of our time. The great challenge faced by consecrated persons is to persevere in seeking God ‘with the eyes of faith in a world which ignores his presence’, and to continue to offer that world Christ’s life of chastity, poverty and obedience as a credible and trustworthy sign, thus becoming ‘a living ‘exegesis’ of God’s word’.” ~Pope Francis, Vultum Dei Quaerere, #2
