    I am single, Catholic and a consecrated person. I am not in a religious order but am fully secular. I belong to Caritas Christi, a Secular Institute, one of many recognized by the Church since 1937. We are professionals who live at home, who love God and make him known and loved wherever we work. I live in India and we have many secular institutes where single men and women bring God’s love to people and in places where religious cannot be. You can read more about this on the website of the United States Conference of Secular Institutes at
    Regarding marriage, the invitation that God gives us is always higher: ‘I will espouse you to me forever.’ (Hos 2:21) This is where Sts. John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila help us and that’s why I’ve been visiting this website.

    Judy, congratulations on attempting to write a book that fills a need and may many singles realize the call the Creator has planted in their hearts.
