The mission of the contemplative vocation

"The specific mission of the contemplative vocation... is to undertake, cherish and promote; what is most deep in the life of the Church.

"Hence, Dominican nuns... have a clear realization that in virtue of their profession they are completely consecrated to the Church and called to bring about the extension of the kingdom of God in the world, by means which are hidden indeed but nevertheless possess a wonderful efficacy."
Anicetus Fernandez, O.P., Master General
(From an address to the General Chapter 1971)
