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).

 

 

Example of life and proclamation

Our Religious Family has as its mission the proclamation of the Kingdom of God, which “is not a concept, a doctrine, or a program subject to free interpretation,

but it is before all else a person with the face and name of Jesus of Nazareth, the image of the invisible God” (Blessed John Paul II, RMs 18).

We are aware that the principal protagonist of this mission is the Holy Spirit, who acts in the Apostles and in all the Church. That is why fidelity to the Holy Spirit is what permits us to overcome all the difficulties that we face in the mission: prohibition against evangelization, obstacles coming from the local cultures, lack of fervor, divisions among Christians, de-Christianization in countries of longstanding

Christian tradition, a decrease in missionary vocations, a bad testimony of the faithful, indifference, and many others. It is the Holy Spirit who guides us to the complete truth (cf. Jn 16,13).

In this apostolic work, we are missionaries above all because of what we are…, even before we become missionaries in word or deed, (Cf. Bl. John Paul II, RMs 23). Our testimony of life – the “first and irreplaceable form of mission” (Bl. John Paul II, RMs 42)– occupies the first place so that the charity of Christ may shine among the faithful.

Preaching is an essential element of this work of apostolate, i.e. “a clear proclamation that Jesus Christ offers salvation to all men” (Pablo VI, EN 27), because “how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? ... Thus faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ” (Rom 10:14-17).
