Is there a future for consecrated life? And for the Church?


Noëlle Hausman s.c.m.

The abuse crisis leads to a closer look at the future of consecrated life, after a century of aggiornamento of religious life and manifestations attributed to the Spirit in the so-called new communities. Will the reforms of community life in the religious world be enough? Hasn’t the incredible institutionalisation of consecrated life paralysed it, while it found itself – like the last emergences of this form of life – struggling with the challenge of Easter hope? If everything is to be remade, is everything to be thrown away? At the end of the day, do not the beginnings of a metamorphosis of consecrated life announce what is hoped for in the whole Church?
