While speaking out against the status quo of his day, Jesus referred to himself and his message as new wine poured out into new wineskins. Today consecrated life is living a time of deep change and is discovering the "new wine": Where shall we put this wine, in old wineskins or in new wineskins?

These guidelines test the wineskins made to preserve the new wines that the Spirit continues to give to his Church, inciting us to initiate changes through concrete action in the short and long term.

It is an exercise in “ecclesial discernment” through which consecrated men and women are called to undergo new changes so that ideals and doctrine become real in our lives: systems, structures, diaconia, styles, relationships and language.

These guidelines are the product of what emerged from the events held during the Year of Consecrated Life.
