Consecrated men and women's call to holiness and to service, in the church and the world were accented in a re- port to the synod by English Cardinal George Basil Hume of Westminster, a Benedictine who is the assembly's record- ing secretary. "Those who have abandoned everything to follow Christ are the bearers of the love of Christ; a love which lives in their hearts, a spousal love of Christ, which is its source and its strength and which nothing can extinguish," said Cardinal Hume's report summarizing the more than 200 speeches that marked the first two weeks of the synod. The Vatican released only a short synthesis of the cardi- nal's Oct. 14 presentation. "Consecrated life is meant to be a presence of God in the world and in society, since its witness has meaning not only for the church, but for contem- porary society," the cardinal said. He characterized the speeches as offering "a choral appreciation for the life and apostolate of consecrated per- sons together with the urgent Call for Gospel radicalism and holiness." In the 30 years since the Second Vatican Council, conse- crated life has traveled the same journey of renewal, change and some tension faced by the church as a whole, he said. Synod speakers called for a better understanding of the es- sential role of consecrated life in the church, a greater inte- gration of consecrated people in the life and pastoral work of their diocesan churches, greater collaboration with the laity and with diocesan priests I could do this forever, Lord, hold this warm baby, cradle his head to my heart, smooth the blanket, stroke his cheek and whisper over and over, Lord, may the only shadow in his life be the shadow of Your wings. For my child's precious child, Lord, let there be light, let there be Christ. Millions do not yet live in the light that is Christ. How can they believe in Him, if they have not heard of Him?

The positive changes in con- secrated life since Vatican II included in the summary were: a greater appreciation of the contemplative life; a closer identification with the poor and work on their behalf, and involvement in ecumenical and interreligious dialogue. The summary said Cardinal Hume dedicated a chapter of his report to attempts at the synod to develop a clear under- standing of the theology of con- secration and the identity of consecrated people in the church.
