In his apostolic letter for the Year of Consecrated Life, Pope Francis called on all consecrated men and women to “wake up the world, since the distinctive sign of consecrated life is prophecy.” He established three aims for consecrated people: to look to the past with gratitude, live the present with passion, and embrace the future with hope.
Keep Watch! examines the prophetic role of consecrated people in the life of the Church, and their call to read and respond to the times in which they live. It helps them respond with gratitude, passion, and hope. Designed to accompany the Year of Consecrated Life, this document provides Scriptural insights, the guidance of Vatican documents, and thoughtful reflections to support consecrated women and men in remaining faithful to their prophetic call and continuing on their journey of grace.
