As part of the Year dedicated especially to Consecrated Life, there was a meeting of the young vowed members of the Order in Rome from the 15th to 19th of September. This meeting was organized by the Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and the Societies of Apostolic Life. 19 young Augustinian friars attended the meeting. They came from the Provinces of Castile (Vicariate of the Antilles), of Spain, of the Philippines (Vicariate of the Orient and the Delegation of Tanzania), England-Scotland, Italy, Malta, Matritense (Vicariate of Panama), Nigeria, and Poland. The title of the meeting was “Wake Up the World!: Gospel – Prophecy – Hope” and there were more than five thousand young men and women religious who participated in the meeting. The meeting was intense, with times for reflection and prayer, opportunities for exchange and dialogue about the many different realities of consecrated life around the world, as well as times for giving witness talks and for celebrating the beauty of the vocation to consecrated life.
