Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE) logo

The Institute of the Incarnate Word – IVE is a catholic religious institute founded by Fr. Carlos Buela in 1984, Argentina. The IVE missions have spread out to 88 dioceses in 38 countries, across the 5 continents. It has a total of 804 members (including priests, monks, brothers and seminarians). The Institute of the Incarnate Word – IVE along with the Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará - SSVM and our Third Order make up the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word (also known as IVE).

 

 

Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue

Our religious family is faced with the problem of de-Christianization of the world and the fragmentation of the Christian reality itself. Our determination to go where we are called to go, that is worldwide (Mk 16, 15), to be not elusive to the missionary adventure, puts us in touch with the reality of an amazing religious symbiosis and a growing confusion in matters of faith.

Our work in areas of long-standing Protestant or Eastern Orthodox traditions, and our preferential apostolate in the world of culture, in universities and schools in general, which bring together men and women of different and even antagonistic beliefs, demands from us very clear guidelines and convictions regarding not only the unfolding of the mission "ad gentes" but also with respect to non-Catholic Christians.

Serving the Church is to serve the cause of unity as beautifully stated by Blessed John Paul II: “Serving the Church is to serve Christ in his plan to "gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad” (Jn 11:52), to renew all things, and to finally recapitulate them in Him, to subject everything to his Father so that all of us, in the Spirit, would be for the eternal praise of his glory. This is a great service! It is worth all our energies. Indeed it is beyond our own strength. It obliges us to pray continually.”

Hence, our religious family wants to participate in this most excellent mission. Providence has willed that Blessed John Paul II, whom we consider the "father" of our congregation, develop this topic in an illustrious manner during his Magisterium. We consider his encyclical "Ut unum sint" to be the Magna Carta of Catholic ecumenism, and the declaration "Dominus Iesus" (approved by John Paul II) as an indispensable document for the correct understanding of this topic.
