The Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious hosted the Symposium, “To Wake up the World”: Religious Life as a Prophetic Witness, November 13-14, 2015. This Symposium on Religious Life was a national event where scholars and religious came together to discuss the beauty of religious life, a life of prophetic witness.
After the event, the Council of Major Superiors of Women religious compiled the talks in to a book, which offers reflections upon the modern relationship between the Church and the consecrated person. Each presentation provides a perspective on the many joys of consecrated life and an understanding that through their very nature, the religious, by way of Jesus Christ, are prophetic examples. It is with this blessing that all members of religious life are called “To Wake Up the World.”
