Consecration to the "Ordo Virginum"

4- in Canada - Date of publication 07-11-2008
I had the joy participating in a beautiful, inspiring celebration at St. Joseph´s Basilica in Edmonton.

          A local professor of Newman Theological College takes vows as a consecrated woman. Here are the highlights of the ceremony. The tradition of consecrating a woman to the “Ordo Virginum” dates back to apostolic times. By consecration to this order, a woman is betrothed mystically to Christ, and is dedicated to the service of the Church (Canon 604).
         Caroline Nolan, after many years of discernment, through prayer, formation and spiritual direction, publicly declared, before the Archbishop and the congregation at St. Joseph’s Basilica, her vow to consecrated chastity, so as to be greater able to dedicate her life to Christ and to the service of the Church. For the duration of the rite, Caroline wore a white robe as a symbol of her baptismal consecration. In accordance with the solemn rite, the candidate prostrated herself as a sign of humility and total abandonment to Christ. The litany of the saints was sung, invoking all the holy men and women of the ages to pray for her, before being consecrated at the hands of Archbishop Richard Smith.

         Caroline was presented with a gold ring to confirm that she has been constituted a sacred person in the Church and that she has become a living sign of the spousal relationship of Christ and the Church. She was also presented with the book of the Divine Office, since she by virtue of her consecration, has committed herself to pray the liturgy of the hours.
         It took a long time to find her call, Caroline admits, and when she first found it she wasn’t impressed at first. Her reaction was: “God, you’ve got to be kidding! What kind of vocation is this?”
         At the same time, however, Caroline said she felt a great sense of peace. It all made sense, the feeling of being called, the searching and finally the realization that she was being called to a life of perfect chastity, to be lived in the world.
