Working in World and Married to the Lord? Unique Secular Institute to Be Discussed on CatholicTV Talk Show
On October 5th, the Secular Institute of Missionaries of the Kingship of Christ (SIM), a unique secular institute of women will be discussed on the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.
SIM members are consecrated to the Lord, and as such do not marry. Unlike the typical religious brother and sister, SIM members do not live in community nor do they have a shared mission/apostolate. Instead, each member of the SIM has her own unique job, while aiming to live out the spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi.
This is the Day airs at 10:30AM ET at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV cable outlets. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30PM and other times during the week.
Mary Lou Carr, a member of the SIM will discuss SIM and her role during an interview on This is the Day.
According to SIM, “Missionaries formally consecrate themselves to the Lord through the vow of celibate chastity and the promises of the Gospel counsels of poverty and obedience, as outlined by our SIM Rule and Constitution. Our vow of chastity is a sign of our commitment to orient our whole lives to the reign of God above all other things. Through poverty the Missionary prepares an annual budget as an expression of the commitment to allocate all resources according to Gospel priorities.”
