The Year of Consecrated Life began on the First Sunday of Advent and will continue through February of 2016. The Catechism says in No. 944 that a Consecrated Life "is characterized by the public profession of the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience, in a stable state of life recognized by the Church." St. Kateri Tekakwitha was one of the first on the North American continent to consecrate her life totally to Christ as a consecrated virgin. In Emily's book on this incredibly faithful saint, learn how she overcame many obstacles to become one of Christ's most fervant devotees. Order your copy at Servant Books.
