A life of consecration prefigures what Christians hope for by calling into question the value of power, sexuality, and material possessions. Religious life challenges the idea that these things alone bring happiness and shows that we can be more fulfilled, happier, and more whole without being attached to them.

Consecrated life, then, is a prophetic witness to the joy of the eschatological call of Christianity.
