Pope Francis has designated the year from the evening of Nov 29, 2014 to February 2, 2016 a “Year of Consecrated Life.” During this year the Holy Father calls the faithful to reflect on the witness of men and women who have dedicated their lives entirely to Christ and his Church, living by the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Throughout this year Dominicana will periodically offer posts directed to helping our readers better appreciate the life to which we (and thousands of others) have been called. To mark the beginning of the year, we offer a series on five different religious orders, reflecting on what they offer to the Church in general and how their particular character can help us to live out our Dominican life more faithfully. Read this series.
