I am very much interested in different vocations within consecrated life.
I read that for woman, this includes:
- Consecrated lay (as a consecrated virgin or by public vows within a secular institute);
- religious life;
I was wondering, if anyone knows anything about a calling to mission. I never heard of this as a calling on its own. I thought it was just a calling within religious life, just like one can have a calling to become a contemplative sister.
Also, one day I was discussing with a friend of mine, if the concept of consecrated lay life also applied to for example Mary of Magdalene? It is for sure that at some point in her life, she was totally dedicated to Christ but I wonder if she has undergone some sort of consecration.
