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:
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.

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 this Lenten Season, offering together the recitation of the Holy Rosary for this intention.
“I invite everyone to make next March 2, Ash Wednesday, a day of fasting for peace. I encourage believers in a special way to devote themselves intensely to prayer and fasting on that day. May the Queen of Peace preserve the world from the madness of war.”
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
