Consecrated life is for all the baptized



Video with Br. Tony Leon and Mike Greeff

02/02/2019: General House

For the celebration of the World Day for Consecrated Life, 2nd February, we invited Br Tony Leon, Director of Brothers Today Secretariat, and Mike Greeff, Director of the Council of Marist Schools in South Africa, to talk about Consecrated Life.

Br Tony Leon pointed out that it is often thought that consecrated life is related only with the religious life of Brothers, Sisters and Priests, but the challenge is to recognize that consecrated life is for all baptized people.

In the video, he affirms that "we need to embrace this sense of Marist life, brothers and lay, that we do share something in common expressed in different lifestyles".

Mike Greeff, speaking of his experience as a lay Marist, confirmed Brother Tony's intuition and said, “… that view of consecrated life for someone who has taken vows is easy to explain and easy to understand … but, if I look at the richness that I experienced in the work that I'm now invited to do in the Marist world, it is a consecrated life that I lead through my baptism and through subsequent sacraments as well that have been in my life and that seeking God in what I do”.

Below is the complete video.
