The Holy Father on Consecrated Life

In an address last Friday, Pope Benedict explained that while the “vocations crisis” in the Church must be taken seriously, we need not fear that consecrated life will ever disappear from the Church:

“Consecrated life as such has its origin in the Lord Himself, who chose for Himself this form of virgin life, poor and obedient. … That is why consecrated life can never be lacking or die in the Church: it was desired by Jesus Himself as irremovable part of His Church.”

– Pope Benedict XVI, Vatican City, November 5, 2010
