Pope Francis has proclaimed 2015 a Year of Consecrated Life, starting on the First Sunday of Advent November 30, 2014 and ending on February 2, 2016, the World Day of Consecrated Life.

Religious life ought to promote growth in the church by way of attraction. The church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of acting, of living! . . . It is this witness that I expect of you. Religious should be men and women who are able to wake the world up.         —Pope Francis, meeting with the Union of Superiors General, November 29, 2013
