Message Urbi et Orbi Holy Father Pope Francis for Easter 2015

Happy Easter!

Resurrexit Sicut Dixit

Our Lady of Fatima

Our Lady of Fatima said to the shepherd children:

“Pray the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world and an end to the war.”

We invite you to join us, offering together the recitation of the Holy Rosary for peace.

Let us pray that there be peace in Israel and in Palestine!

In this month of October dedicated, in addition to the missions, to praying the Rosary, let us not tire of asking through Mary’s intercession for the gift peace in the many countries throughout the world marked by war and conflicts. And let us continue to remember the dear Ukraine, which suffers so much every day, which is so battered.

Our Essential Elements, non-negotiables

Our charism is defined as «the grace to prolong Christ in families, in education, in the media, in men of thought and in every other legitimate manifestation of man’s life. It is the gift of making each man “like a new Incarnation of the Word”, being essentially missionaries and Marians.»

Within our charism, we have defined essential elements of our Religious Family. These elements are as follows:

Our Religious Family

The Institute of the Incarnate Word is the male branch of the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word.

The Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará is the female branch of the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word.

The Third Order of the Institute of the Incarnate Word is formed by the lay faithful.

May Christ reign through Mary!

The Religious of the Family of the Incarnate Word have their spirituality anchored in the sacrosanct mystery of the Incarnation, the mystery of the Word made flesh in the womb of the Virgin Mary.

For this reason, we wish “to manifest our love and gratitude to the Blessed Virgin, by making a fourth vow of slavery to Mary according to the spirituality of Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort. This will secure her indispensable help in perpetuating the Incarnation in all things.”1
