Living the Consecrated Life

Pope Francis proclaimed 2015 a Year of Consecrated Life, starting on the First Sunday of
Advent, the weekend of November 29, 2014, 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. Its
purpose, as stated by the Vatican is to “make a grateful remembrance of the recent past” while
embracing “the future with hope.”

“Our brothers and sisters in Christ living consecrated lives make great contributions to our
society through a vast number of ministries,” said Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville,
Kentucky, president of USCCB. “They teach in our schools, take care of the poor and the sick
and bring compassion and the love of Christ to those shunned by society; others lead lives of
prayer in contemplation for the world.”

Pope Francis has also decided to allow the faithful to receive plenary indulgence during the Year of Consecrated Life. According to CNA/EWTN News:
‘On the occasion of the Year of Consecrated Life …, Pope Francis has allowed the faithful to receive plenary indulgences, under the normal conditions.

“The Holy Father, on the occasion of the Year of Consecrated Life, will concede plenary indulgences, with the customary conditions, to all members of the institutes of consecrated life and other truly repentant faithful moved by a spirit of charity,” a Nov. 28 statement from the Vatican read.’
