Among many topics addressed by the Second Vatican Council was the need for the renewal of religious life. Some forty years later, many religious orders of women are dying out, begging the question: Did the reforms of Vatican II help the religious orders become more fruitful, or did they plant the seeds of destruction?
In this work, Mother carefully and prayerfully examined the decree on religious life promulgated by the Council Fathers and uncovered its noble meaning and purpose. She goes to the heart of the document, Perfectae Caritatis, and finds there the calling to pursue perfect love though chastity, poverty and obedience -- that Christ himself extends to those disciples who would follow him more closely. This book is a timely volume on this important topic for religious life in the Church.
