"Vita Consecrata" 25 Years Later
The Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life (CIVCSVA), Cardinal João Braz de Aviz, sent a message to all consecrated men and women on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Apostolic Exhortation Vita Consecrata of St. John Paul II.
In September 2017, I came to Rome to work as a secretary in the Curia of the Abbot Primate of the Benedictine Confederation in Sant’ Anselmo on the Aventine. Since the partial integration into the community of monks was not as easy as it had sounded in preliminary discussions, I soon began to look for other contacts in the city. I knew already both the Pallottine Fathers and the Pallottine Missionary Sisters from translation assignments and, Sr. Maria Landsberger had even been to my home monastery in Dinklage for a few vacation days.
