The Consecrated Life

We would like to publish some homilies that Fr. Buela has written about the consecrated life. These homilies have been written especially for the Servidoras. We pray that these reflections only draws one closer to God.

A Youth's Response cont.

Beginning of the homily

3. Let us imitate the saints of all times that found their joy in promptly following the call of God. 

We do not even know the name of this youth. On the other hand, he could have given his name to cities like the apostle St James: Santiago of Compostela, Santiago of Cuba, Santiago of Chile, Santiago of Estero, …of Philippines, of Panama, of Paraguay, of Peru.

Let us encourage those who could have “subiectum” to follow evangelical perfection not foolishly opposing them. Jesus promised, “Amen I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age…with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come (Mk 10:29-30). Heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away (Mt. 24:35).
