This third circular letter for the Year of Consecrated Life invites consecrated people to live the contemplative dimension in order to rediscover that vital relationship with God, which allows them to see humanity and creation with his eyes.
During one of his homilies at the Domus Sanctae Marthae, Pope Francis emphasised that: “The contemplative dimension is indispensable while dealing with urgent and grave issues.”
He went to say: “The more our mission urges us to go forth towards the existential outskirts, the more our heart feels the need to be intimately united to that of Christ, which is full of mercy and love.”
Contemplate reaffirms this need to restart from the intimate relationship with God in order to respond to the current challenges of the Church and of the wider world.
