The consecrated life, deeply rooted in the example and teaching of Christ the Lord, is a gift of God the Father to the Church through the Holy Spirit.
Bishops, in union with the Roman Pontiff, receive from Christ the Head the duty of discerning gifts and competencies ... They ... are also entrusted with the duty of caring for religious charisms.
Consecrated persons are called to be a leaven of communion at the service of the mission of the universal Church by the very fact that the manifold charisms of their respective institutes are granted by the Holy Spirit for the good of the entire Mystical Body whose upbuilding they must serve (cf. 1 Cor. 12:4-11).
