More than 4,000 consecrated persons from all over the world will participate in Rome from 28 January to 2 February at the closing of the Year of Consecrated Life.
These days of meetings are alternated with prayer vigils and moments of deepening the specificity of each form of life, "with a prophetic look on the future". On February 1st. the worldwide consecrated will meet the Holy Father in audience and on February 2nd the Eucharistic celebration presided by the Pope will close solemnly this year of grace.
In this event are participating, for the Holy Land, the coordinator of the Association and one of her counselor.
We are accompanying all of them with our thoughts and our prayers and according to the words of our Pope Francis, is a wonderful opportunity for everyone “to experience this Year above all as a moment of thanksgiving to the Lord and grateful remembrance for all the gifts we continue to receive, thanks to the sanctity of founders and foundresses, and from the fidelity to their charism shown by so many consecrated men and women. I ask all of you to draw close to these men and women, to rejoice with them, to share their difficulties and to assist them, to whatever degree possible, in their ministries and works, for the latter are, in the end, those of the entire Church. Let them know the affection and the warmth which the entire Christian people feel for them" (Letter to all consecrated people III, 2)
