In this book, Sr. Mary Jane Klimisch, O.S.B. writes on what it means to be 'One Bride' and what consecrated virginity is. Among other things, she talks about the Church being the Virgin-Bride-Mother, the participation in this by the baptized faithful, the priesthood and consecrated virginity, religious life, consecrated virginity for religious nuns, and the life to come. Sr. M. Jane wrote this book shortly before the new Rite of Consecration to a Life of Virginity was promulgated. In her day, only nuns could receive the Consecration and so she wrote accordingly. Now, the Rite is divided and can be used by contemplative nuns with the privilege, and by women living in the world. The reader will have to keep this in mind because for the woman living in the world, the consecration establishes her in a nuptial bond. Bookseller Inventory # 53985
