The vows in line with the signs of the times

The vows in line with the signs of the times


Online course


Since the Second Vatican Council, all three vows have evolved. Some people want to live a life committed to the Gospel but do not want to live the three traditional vows - poverty, chastity, and obedience - as they have usually been interpreted. Or perhaps only one or two of these vows make sense to them. Someone may want to make a new vow that speaks to the heart of their identity and vocation.  People may choose to develop vows that express the kind of life they want to commit to in today's context. All that is required is an openness to the Spirit, or rather a willingness to dance with the Spirit.


These sessions will look at the historical development of the vows, their biblical basis, the light shed by the Second Vatican Council, changes and challenges, and practical tips.
