Abstract: This study delves and explores Religious Life as prophetic witness in an African context. The introduction explores the analogy between African and Catholic forms of consecrated life. Chapter one takes into consideration the overview of prophecy in scripture and tradition while Chapter two deals with the vows as prophetic witness in Africa. Chapter three looks into the challenges of Religious prophetic witness in Africa. As I carried out this research, it dawned on me that as an African Religious I must not lose sight of my own identity as a living human being, with my own consciousness, affectivity, sensibility, way of feeling, seeing and conception of life. Religious Life is the place where I can offer to God all that I am and have; the whole of my being. In order to authentically respond to this call, we African Religious have to stay close to the realities of our countries of origin. To all those who will come across this work: the highest vocation is the one which God has called you to.
