A Vision for the Future of Religious Life

LCWR past president Sister Teresa Maya, CCVI delivered the keynote address on the first day of the plenary of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) in Rome. The event has drawn together approximately 850 major superiors of orders of Catholic sisters from all over the world. In her address, "A Vision for the Future of Religious Life," Sister Teresa noted, "We have a new apostolic call to offer meaning to a suffering world, with the non-verbal language that our consecrated life can speak with such beauty. We need to offer a prophecy the world can see. Our way to prophecy is through compassion.” The participants processed the address in small groups with translation services available in 13 languages.
