"By Name I Have Called You..."
In celebration of religious life and consecrated religious, I thought it would be interesting to consider some of the unique histories and traditions of various religious communities. To do complete histories here would be impossible; however, I thought it would be interesting to pick an aspect of religious life and consider its traditions and how they have remained the same or changed over time.
The component I've decided to pick is "naming," the giving/selection of one's name in religious life. So, visitors, I invite you to share your community's traditions and practices around religious names in community.
