Apostolic exhortation of Pope Paul VI on religious life. The most important single document on the subject since the Second Vatican Council. It recognizes that some are calling into question the very existence of religious life. Its main focus is to urge religious to be faithful to the charism of their respective founders and to cultivate a strong spiritual life, whose center is the Eucharist (June 29, 1971).
