I was reading the August issue of eLumen and found the article under Pleasing Preaching most interesting.
The article, "The Life of a Consecrated Virgin: A powerful witness of preaching on how to follow Christ," is written by Ms. Mary Beth Dillon, a Consecrated Virgin. She explains that her consecrated life is witness to the reality of a marriage between Christ and His mystical Body, the Church, because as a "Bride of Christ" her consecration permeates the way she lives: work, home, recreation, where ever.
Of course, the role model for Consecrated Virgins is Mary. Mary was the first Consecrated Virgin
My interest was such that I did a prolifeinternet search and found a blog, that explained Consecrated Virgins and gave a couple of links.
I do think this is a wonderful calling.
