What in particular does Pope Francis expect from this
Year of grace for consecrated life?
He tells us that the old saying will always be true;
“Where there are religious, there is joy”. We are called
to know and show that God is able to fill our hearts to
the brim with happiness; that we need not seek our
happiness elsewhere; that the authentic fraternity found
in our communities increases our joy; and that our total
self-giving in service to the Church, to families and
young people, to the elderly and the poor, brings us
life-long personal fulfilment .
None of us should de dour, discontented and
dissatisfied, for “a gloomy disciple is a disciple of
gloom”. Like everyone else, we have our troubles, our
dark nights of the soul, our disappointments and
infirmities, our experience of slowing down as we grow
older. But in all these things we should be able to
discover “perfect joy”. For it is here that we learn to
recognize the face of Christ, who became like us in all
things, and to rejoice in the knowledge that we are
being conformed to him who, out of love of us, did not
refuse the sufferings of the cross.
In a society which exalts the cult of efficiency, fitness
and success, one which ignores the poor and dismisses
“Losers” we can witness by our lives to the truth of the
words of Scripture: “When I am weak, then I am
strong” (2 Cor 12:10).
An Afternoon of Prayer with the
Religious of the Diocese
will take place in the Ozanam Centre this Sunday
1st February at 3pm. All welcome.
