Each year during the second week of January (9-14), the Catholic bishops of the United States remind us all of the need to reflect upon the dignity of our calling as baptized Christians to help spread the Kingdom of God on earth.

Some may discern that God is asking them to dedicate their entire lives to serving God and God’s people by choosing the consecrated life.
