Institute on Religious Life Meeting 2014

What a great year to be there!

I have gone almost every year since I have was first professed.  This year was truly special though, with the canonization of both Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII.

Monsignor TurroThis year, which was also their 40th anniversary, Monsignor James Turro received the Pro Fidelitate et Virtute Award. 

Sister Teresa Paul accompanied me.  It was her first time to the Institute on Religious Life (IRL) national meeting.  As always it was so good to see some many religious from all over the country.  Also, so many good and faithful lay people who support the religious life. 

I'm afraid I didn't really take many pictures, but this year the IRL did a live stream video of many of the main talks and Liturgies.  The videos are on the IRL YouTube channel
