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).

 

 

The Spiritual Exercises

St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Spiritual Exercises, defined them by saying "every method of examination of conscience, meditation, contemplation, vocal and mental prayer, and other spiritual operations ... For just as strolling, walking and running are bodily exercises, so also every way of preparing and disposing the soul, to remove from it all disordered inclinations, and once removed, to seek and find the Divine Will in the sphere of one’s own life for the salvation of the soul, are called Spiritual Exercises."

As members of the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word, we want to imitate Jesus Christ in his retreat of 40 days in the wilderness, so as to overcome ourselves and order our own lives according to God.

To do this we want to know the Spiritual Exercises in depth and prepare ourselves for preaching them fruitfully, disposing ourselves generously to preach them as the occasion arises. The Spiritual Exercises are one of the preferential apostolates of our religious family.

"The Spiritual Exercises represent a particularly precious path and method to seek and find the face of God, in ourselves, around us, and in all things, and to know his will and put it into practice "(Benedict XVI).
