Launch of book on women religious
Morning Star Publishing invites everyone to the book launch of "Perfect Charity", a book of stories on women religious living the spirit of Vatican II, on 28 November 2014, Friday, 5-7pm at Mary MacKillop Place, North Sydney.
Wrapping the world in prayer for peace
On the first Sunday of Advent, as the Year of Consecrated Life begins, Benedictines in Australia will pray for peace at First Vespers on this day. Join them in making November 29 a universal day of prayer of peace.
What if the Year of Consecrated Life ushers in a new graced time for religious, a kairos time, a time of vitality, hope and vision, a time that addresses the cries of a twenty first century world? This is one of the many possibilities that Sister Sue McGuiness rsj recently hoped for the Josephites, and we at CRA echo these hopes for the benefit of all religious.
On consecrated life
"They (the consecrated) are men and women who can awaken the world. Consecrated life is prophecy. God asks us to fly the nest and to be sent to the frontiers of the world, avoiding the temptation to ‘domesticate’ them. This is the most concrete way of imitating the Lord." - Pope Francis
