(a) records its thankfulness to Almighty God for the revival of the Religious Life among men and women, and for
the work and witness of the Religious Communities in the life of the Church in Australia, and

(b) commends the Religious Life as a possible vocation to the young men and women of the Church.

(The Bishop of Ballarat, 24.9.69)
