It is the Church, through the authority committed to her by God, which receives the vows of persons making profession, by her public prayer asks of God help and grace for them, commends them to God, imparts to them her spiritual blessings and links their self-oblation to the eucharistic sacrifice. — Lumen gentium, 45
