Consecrated Virginity


Spouse of Christ Living in the World: Consecrated Virgins embody the image of the heavenly Bride and the life that is to come. Consecrated to God by her diocesan bishop, a consecrated virgin is mystically betrothed to Christ and dedicated to the service of the Church in her diocese. She lives in the world in prayer, penance, service of her brethren, and apostolic activity, according to the spiritual gifts God has given her.

Perpetual Vow of Virginity, Living for Jesus
