Six of our Sisters marked the World Day of Consecrated Life at the celebration at the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome, Italy on February 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord and the 27th World Day of Consecrated Life. The Eucharistic celebration was presided over by His Eminence Cardinal João Braz de Aviz, prefect of the Dicastery for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and the Societies of Apostolic Life. The homily was delivered by Archbishop José Rodríguez Carballo, O.F.M., secretary of the same Dicastery.
