SSVM Missions in the World - Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará

Our charism is the grace to know how to work concretely in order to prolong Christ in families, in education, in mass media, in intellectuals and in all other legitimate manifestations of the life of man.  It is the gift to make each man “like a new Incarnation of the Word,” by being essentially missionary and Marian. (Const. 31)

We want to be founded in Jesus Christ, who has come in the flesh, only in Christ, and always in Christ, Christ in everything and in all, because the Rock is Christ, and no other foundation can anyone lay.  (Const. 7)

“We aspire to form religious for the Catholic Church according to the Heart of Christ...” (Const. 231)
 
After the novitiate, our sisters begin a new period of religious formation, characterized by Philosophical and Theological studies...and oriented towards preparing for perpetual profession.
 
“We do not content ourselves with a superficial knowledge of Philosophy and Theology incapable of understanding in all its depth the contemporary drama of atheism and therefore incapable of giving remedy.”  (Const. 259)
 
Our International Juniorate "St. Teresa de Jesus" houses around 80 religious from different parts of the world.
 
"The end of formation is Christ alone, Christ always, Christ in everything, Christ in all, and All Christ, until the religious can truly say...'yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me' (Gal. 2:20)." (Const. 230)
 
"In the temple, in the cloister, in the cell, in the dining room, in recreations, they must always be crying out for Christ." (Const. 209)
 
"The song and laughter of the member of our Religious Family must be to cry for Jesus Christ.  This is their duty" (Const. 209)
 
"How much you can do today for the Church and for humankind! They wait for your generous surrender, your free dedication of your heart, which unsuspectingly extends its potencies of love in a world that is losing its capacity for altruism and sacrificing, disinterested love.  In effect, remember that you are mystic spouses of Christ, and of Christ crucified." St. John Paul II
 
"Religious life is a process of continual conversion that does not finish in the years of formation, but must be maintained and must grow more everyday." (Const. 262)
 
We entrust our new house of formation to St. Francis and St. Bonaventure, Patron of Fidanza, asking for the grace that many holy religious can be formed in order to go into the whole world for the good of the church and the salvation of many souls!

SSVM Taking of the Holy Habit - Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará

The religious of our Institute must wear the Holy Habit, which is a sign of their consecration and witness of their poverty (Const. 154).

...it is of a great importance to wear permanently an exterior sign of a religious habit… (Const. 154).

“…In that way the blue scapular, which represents the Divine Word, put over the grey habit, which symbolizes the humanity, is an eloquent statement about the great mystery of the Incarnation, in which the Word was united with our nature and dressed in our flesh…”
(Fr. Buela, IVE, Las Servidoras, Tomo I).

“In each Servant there should be a love for her Habit, it should be like her skin, so that united to the Incarnate Word, who united Heaven and Earth, she may flower into all kinds of good works and be for all the good scent of Christ (2 Cor 2:15).”
(Fr. Buela, IVE, Las Servidoras, Tomo I).

Consecration of the Servidoras to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Today, July 23, 2016, M. María Corredentora Rodríguez consecrated the Institute to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

At the end of the hour of Eucharistic Adoration and Vespers in the Chapel of the Daughters of Christ the King, M. Corredentora, while kneeling in front of the Blessed Sacrament in exposition, read the formula of consecration of the Institute of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  We then sang the Litanies in honor of the Sacred Heart. In this way our Institute, its works, and each one of the Servidoras, have been entrusted to the Heart of Christ, from which flow rays of light and mercy, fount of blessings and graces.

In the Good Nights relative to this act of consecration having just taken place, M. Corredentora reminded us of this passage in our Constitutions: ” We must never cease to consider the inexhaustible treasure of virtues of Jesus’ hypostatic Heart. To contemplate this most rich source, without ever lifting our gaze from it, should be the badge of honor, the distinctive sign, of our Institute (Directory of Spirituality, 75).

Long live the Heart of Jesus, our King and our Father!

"...we adore Jesus Christ for all who do not adore Him, for all who forget Him, abandon Him, scorn Him, and offend Him." (Saint Peter Julian Eymard)

We live in the Year of the Mercy, thanks to the vision of our Pope Francis, who unerringly sensed how much people on earth need Divine Mercy.

We look around us, we do not have to go far to witness many material and spiritual needs of mankind.

Do we dare to see them? What does this mean to us? What does God require of us?

The Works of Mercy
The seven spiritual works of mercy
1. Counsel the doubtful,
2. Instruct the ignorant,
3. Admonish sinners,
4. Comfort the afflicted,
5. Forgive offenses,
6. Bear wrong patiently
7. Pray for the living and the dead

The seven corporal works of mercy
1. Feed the hungry,
2. Give to drink to the thirsty
3. Shelter the homeless,
4. Clothe the naked,
5. Visit the sick,
6. Visit the imprisoned,
7. Bury the dead

Love is a verb, we must put it into practice!
St. Ignatius of Loyola says: Love lies more in deed than in words.
God wants us to have his love, for Deus caritas est.

Who is man in the eyes of God?
Every human being has come into the world with his or her "mission" for God and neighbor. Every life has a meaning

"We are not here for work. We are here for Jesus.
First, we are religious.
We are not social workers, teachers, nurses, doctors.
In the poor, we serve Jesus and everything we do is for Him. Our life has no other meaning. This is something that many do not understand.
We serve Jesus twenty-four hours a day, and He gives us the power.
We love Him in the poor and the poor we love with Him, but always first for Him. "  Blessed Madre Teresa de Calcuta

Besides the crucifixion, the incarnation of Christ is the greatest sign of God's mercy: the great God, became a small man, and chose to come to us through Mary.

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy” (Mt. 5,8)

Transcript of Vita Consecrata - 3 of 10 - Why Profess Religious Vows?

From Vita Consecrata (1996), #87 © 1996 - Libreria Editrice Vaticana

87. The prophetic task of the consecrated life is brought into play by three major challenges addressed to the Church herself: they are the same challenges as ever, posed in new ways, and perhaps more radically, by contemporary society, at least in some parts of the world.

(00:19) These challenges relate directly to the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience, impelling the Church, and consecrated persons in particular, to clarify and testify to the profound anthropological significance of the counsels. The decision to follow the counsels, far from involving an impoverishment of truly human values, leads instead to their transformation.

(00:42) The evangelical counsels should not be considered as a denial of the values inherent in sexuality, in the legitimate desire to possess material goods or to make decisions for oneself. Insofar as these inclinations are based on nature, they are good in themselves. Human beings, however, weakened as they are by original sin, run the risk of acting on them in a way which transgresses the moral norms.

(1:06) The profession of chastity, poverty and obedience is a warning not to underestimate the wound of original sin and, while affirming the value of created goods, it relativizes them by pointing to God as the absolute good.

(1:20)Thus, while those who follow the evangelical counsels seek holiness for themselves, they propose, so to speak, a spiritual "therapy" for humanity, because they reject the idolatry of anything created and in a certain way they make visible the living God. The consecrated life, especially in difficult times, is a blessing for human life and for the life of the Church.

Vita Consecrata - 2 of 10 - The Trinity and the Evangelical Counsels

21. The deepest meaning of the evangelical counsels is revealed when they are viewed in relation to the Holy Trinity, the source of holiness. They are in fact an expression of the love of the Son for the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit. By practicing the evangelical counsels, the consecrated person lives with particular intensity the Trinitarian and Christological dimension which marks the whole of Christian life.

The chastity of celibates and virgins, as a manifestation of dedication to God with an undivided heart (cf. 1 Cor 7:32(link is external)-34), is a reflection of the infinite love which links the three Divine Persons in the mysterious depths of the life of the Trinity, the love to which the Incarnate Word bears witness even to the point of giving his life, the love "poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit" (Rom 5:5), which evokes a response of total love for God and the brethren.

Poverty proclaims that God is man's only real treasure. When poverty is lived according to the example of Christ who, "though he was rich ... became poor" (2 Cor 8:9), it becomes an expression of that total gift of self which the three Divine Persons make to one another. This gift overflows into creation and is fully revealed in the Incarnation of the Word and in his redemptive death.

Obedience, practiced in imitation of Christ, whose food was to do the Father's will (cf. Jn 4:34(link is external)), shows the liberating beauty of a dependence which is not servile but filial, marked by a deep sense of responsibility and animated by mutual trust, which is a reflection in history of the loving harmony between the three Divine Persons.

The consecrated life is thus called constantly to deepen the gift of the evangelical counsels with a love which grows ever more genuine and strong in the Trinitarian dimension: love for Christ, which leads to closeness with him; love for the Holy Spirit, who opens our hearts to his inspiration; love for the Father, the first origin and supreme goal of the consecrated life. The consecrated life thus becomes a confession and a sign of the Trinity, whose mystery is held up to the Church as the model and source of every form of Christian life.

Even fraternal life, whereby consecrated persons strive to live in Christ with "one heart and soul" (Acts 4:32(link is external)), is put forward as an eloquent witness to the Trinity. It proclaims the Father, who desires to make all of humanity one family. It proclaims the Incarnate Son, who gathers the redeemed into unity, pointing the way by his example, his prayer, his words and above all his death, which is the source of reconciliation for a divided and scattered humanity. It proclaims the Holy Spirit as the principle of unity in the Church, wherein he ceaselessly raises up spiritual families and fraternal communities.

The Consecrated Life - Introduction to Consecrated Life and the Evangelical Counsels
1. The Consecrated Life, deeply rooted in the example and teaching of Christ the Lord, is a gift of God the Father to his Church through the Holy Spirit. 
 
By the profession of the evangelical counsels the characteristic features of Jesus — the chaste, poor and obedient one — are made constantly "visible" in the midst of the world and the eyes of the faithful are directed towards the mystery of the Kingdom of God already at work in history, even as it awaits its full realization in heaven.
 
In every age there have been men and women who, obedient to the Father's call and to the prompting of the Spirit, have chosen this special way of following Christ, in order to devote themselves to him with an "undivided" heart (cf. 1 Cor 7:34). Like the Apostles, they too have left everything behind in order to be with Christ and to put themselves, as he did, at the service of God and their brothers and sisters. In this way, through the many charisms of spiritual and apostolic life bestowed on them by the Holy Spirit, they have helped to make the mystery and mission of the Church shine forth, and in doing so have contributed to the renewal of society.
 
16. By professing the evangelical counsels, consecrated persons not only make Christ the whole meaning of their lives but strive to reproduce in themselves, as far as possible, "that form of life which he, as the Son of God, accepted in entering this world."
 
By embracing chastity, they make their own the pure love of Christ and proclaim to the world that he is the Only-Begotten Son who is one with the Father (cf. Jn 10:30, 14:11). 
 
By imitating Christ's poverty, they profess that he is the Son who receives everything from the Father, and gives everything back to the Father in love (cf. Jn 17:7, 10). 
 
By accepting, through the sacrifice of their own freedom, the mystery of Christ's filial obedience, they profess that he is infinitely beloved and loving, as the One who delights only in the will of the Father (cf. Jn 4:34), to whom he is perfectly united and on whom he depends for everything.
 
By this profound "configuration" to the mystery of Christ, the consecrated life brings about in a special way that confessio Trinitatis which is the mark of all Christian life; it acknowledges with wonder the sublime beauty of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and bears joyful witness to his loving concern for every human being.

On January 22 marked the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the United States of America.Since that tragic decision, more than 56 million children's lives have been lost to abortion, not to mention the countless mothers and fathers who suffer their absence.

Please join us in prayer and sacrifice for this very important intention, begging our Lord, through the intercession of His Blessed Mother, for an end to abortion.

Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará (SSVM) welcome young women (ages 18-35) to a Come and See Discernment Retreat 2015 from Friday, March 27 (5:00pm) to Sunday, March 29 (3:00pm) in Washington, DC. 

We belong to the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word founded in Argentina by Fr. Carlos Miguel Buela, IVE in the 1980's. Together with the IVE priests and Third Order lay members, we are missionaries who make a fourth Marian vow and commit ourselves to the prolongation of the Incarnation through the evangelization of culture. 

St. John Paul the Great taught us by his pontificate and holy life never to fear the missionary adventure, but to "open wide the doors to Christ"! As spouses of Christ and daughters of the Church, we are sisters who wish to give witness to Christ in the Third Millennium.

For schedule, on-line registration, and more information visit www.ssvmusa.org or contact the Vocations Director, Mother Mary of the Immaculate Conception, SSVM at ssvmvocations@servidoras.org / (202)543-1179.

The Holy Father in Bethlehem
On May 25, 2014 the Holy Father visited Bethlehem, Holy Land, and celebrated Mass in front of the Basilica of the Nativity.  Almost 900 perople attended.
 
The SSVM sisters who mission in Bethlehem in our Home, Child Jesus, attended the Mass with seven of our children.  At the end of the Mass they received a papal blessing.
 
The sisters did not want the Holy Father to leave Bethlehem, the place that was the birthplace of the Child Jesus without receiving a picture of Him, so they decided to give the Holy Father an image of the little Baby Jesus. When the moment arrived to greet the Holy Father, he blessed the image and the sister who handed the image to him said: "It is for you! So every time you see it, you will see us, and remember the children, the sick, the weak." She also said that we pray for him and ended saying with hands joined, "We love you very much!"
 
Looking at the sister that was close, the Holy Father said: "Continue working as before," and then blessed Samar, a young Larzinho who was with his sister.
 
It was a moment of great emotion for the children and the sisters.  We give thanks to God for greeting the Holy Father who is our "Sweet Christ on earth!"

In this season of graduations, we too have reason to celebrate! In May, Sister Maria del Fiat Miola, SSVM has earned her Master’s Degree in Greek and Latin at The Catholic University of America, alongside Sr. Marie Notre Dame de B...on Secours Casadaban, SSVM who completed her Bachelor’s in Theology, also at CUA in Washington, DC.

The commencement ceremony at The Catholic University of America is truly “at the feet of Mary” since the side steps of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception provide the platform and setting.

Like so many proud families, we gathered early to catch a glimpse of our sisters as they processed!

Sr. Bon Secours completed her Bachelor’s which she had begun straight out of high school, and then set aside in order to enter religious life in her third year. It has been a beautiful thing to see her complete what she once began within the fulfillment of her vocation!

ssvm.invocation.CUA.Arts.and.Sciences.2014We were particularly proud of Sr. Fiat who was chosen to give the invocation at the diploma ceremony for the graduate students of the School of Arts and Sciences.

Her prayer thanked God for His care over all the students and also asked for the grace that all those graduating would call to mind that “to whom much is given, much shall be demanded (Lk. 12:48).”

with.diplomaSr. Fiat has been a teacher of Latin within our Religious Family for over ten years and her own scholarship seeks to contribute to the academic research on early monasticism and evangelization of culture in the Late Roman Empire. Her work has a clear orientation to the missionary call to “bear fruit, fruit that will last (Jn. 15:16).”

graduate.with.novicesMay Our Lady bless the studies of all our sisters: those here in the Province as well as those learning new languages in the foreign missions, the sisters studying philosophy in the Pontifical Universities in Rome, and those completing nursing and education degrees.
