God Alone Can Give Fullness to Human Existence


me @ prayer

“The life of prayer and contemplation founded on the Eucharistic mystery is also at the heart of the vocation of consecrated people who have chosen the path of the sequela Christi, to give themselves to the Lord with an undivided heart in an ever more intimate relationship with him. By their unconditional attachment to Christ and to his Church, they have the special mission to reminding everyone of the universal vocation to holiness…. [C]onsecrated men and women proclaim that God alone can give fullness to human existence.” ~Pope Benedict XVI, Address to Canadian bishops, May 11, 2006
