Consecrated Life

The Marianist high school students attending the Life Teen Conference at Benedictine College were filled with challenging thoughts today.

They were taught how to defend their faith, how to develop their prayer life, and what the Church teaches on many hot contemporary topics. The evening continued with a vocational talk from the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

We explored many ideas today and the following quote from Vita Consecrata was certainly the most thought provoking:

"The consecrated life thus becomes one of the tangible seals which the Trinity impresses upon history, so that people can sense with longing the attraction of divine beauty."
