Abstract

The Second Vatican Council and CCEO use “consecration” and “profession” to denote the commitment that signifies the beginning of the religious life. Despite appearing to denote the same reality, these two terms have different theological and canonical connotations. This article attempts to understand the notions of consecration and profession in CCEO, particularly monastic profession and profession in orders and congregations. For the first part of this article see Iustitia, Vol. 10, n. 1 (2019).
