Tawau : We, as baptised Catholics are called to holiness through a relationship with God. Some people receive a call to live their baptism through religious life. Consecrated women dedicate their entire lives to God and the Church through the public profession of the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience.
In every age there have been men and women who, obedient to the Father's call and to the prompting of the Spirit, have chosen this special way of following Christ, in order to devote themselves to him with an "undivided" heart (cf. 1 Cor 7:34), ~ Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Vita Consecrata of the Holy Father John Paul ll.
