As the Church brings the needs of the family to the forefront with the upcoming Synod this fall, one Dominican sister says it is no surprise that Pope Francis should also dedicate this year to the consecrated life.
“One nourishes the other,” explained Dominican Sister Maria Magdalene in an interview with CNA. “You don’t have vocations just materialize out of thin air. They’re fed by good families.”
“I think it’s really beautiful that Pope Francis has called this Year for Consecrated Life,” said the Chicago, Illinois native, observing the year’s overlap with a period in which the Church is giving special attention to the family.
