Vultum Dei Quaerere

by Pope Francis


  add to cart

The promotion of adequate formation, the centrality of the lectio divina, specific criteria for the autonomy of contemplative communities, and the membership of monasteries in a federation are some of the key points of the Apostolic Constitution Vultum Dei Quaerere [Seeking the face of God], signed by Pope Francis on 29 June and dedicated to women’s contemplative life.

The document was motivated, the Pontiff explains, by the journey taken by the Church and ‘rapid historical changes’ in the fifty years since Vatican Council II. Pope Francis highlights the need to engage in dialogue with contemporary society, safeguarding however ‘the foundational values of contemplative life,’ whose characteristics - silence, listening, stability - ‘can and must challenge the contemporary mindset’.

Introduced by an extensive reflection on the importance of women religious and nuns for the Church and for the world, the document indicates twelve themes for reflection and discernment for consecrated life in general, and concludes with fourteen regulatory articles.
