(CCC 2364, 2397) • Married couples should regard it as their proper mission to transmit human life and to educate their children; they should realize that they are thereby cooperating with the love of God the Creator. (CCC 2367) C. The dedicated single life is the vocation by which God calls some people to serve others by being single and/or living in community. These people live out the unfolding of baptismal grace. People called to this life of service may choose to be a sister, nun, brother, monk, hermit, consecrated virgin, or a single person.
