Consecrated life - It is JOY.

“This is the beauty of consecration: IT IS JOY.”
                                                                                              Pope Francis
A vocation is an invitation to love. It is the response to a call deep within the mystery of each heart. The heart of one called to religious life is kindled with a love that can only be satisfied by a total and radical gift of self to Christ who calls her to Himself. This animating response of love is expressed in the great JOY of a life freely given to God.
