THE JOY OF LEARNING ABOUT THE VOWS!

by

Our two novices: Mei, Rowena and I are staying at a beautiful retreat house up in the mountains where we are taking part in a course on the vows. This course, entitled “Understanding and Living the Vows” is a way of learning together about the vows of consecrated celibacy, poverty and obedience through presentations, drama, discussion and sharing as well as through some input given towards the end of the week. I am enjoying the sessions all of which are led by the novices themselves. However what most strikes me is the high level of energy and joy which pervades this entire event. At times I think the volume of laughter around the place will raise the roof! All of these thirty four young religious will pronounce their first vows within a few months. What hope there is for Consecrated Life! Let us pray for new religious. Let us pray for each other.
