Institute of the Incarnate Word - IVE

The Institute of the Incarnate Word - IVE, the male branch of the Incarnate Word family, began in Argentina on March 25, 1984, the day in which His Holiness John Paul II consecrated the world to the Most Holy Virgin of Fatima. It is a clerical institute (in which religious who are not priests also form a part), whose members aspire to consecrate ourselves to God by means of the profession of the evangelical counsels, making public vows, living a fraternal life in common, with the separation proper to religious so that we can tend to the perfection of our state.

We, the religious of the Incarnate Word, want to be anchored in the mystery of the Incarnation which, as John Paul II has said, “is the first and fundamental mystery of Jesus Christ.” From this mystery, we want to undertake “to reestablish all things in Christ” (Eph 1:10), seeking to be as another Incarnation of the Word in order to make Him incarnate in all that is human. We are aware that, as St. Irenaeus teaches, “that which is not assumed is not redeemed”. Thus, nothing that is authentically human is foreign to us, because the life of grace that Jesus Christ came to bring to the world must be brought to everything and everyone.

In the work of evangelization, we look to draw light and strength from the Mystery of the Incarnate Word. We nourish ourselves with the two-millennial wisdom of the Church, and turn to the methods used by her best representatives: the saints.

 

For this reason, the Institute is at the disposition of the Bishops to assist them in their local Churches, providing teachers for seminaries, and priests for the care of parishes and schools of various levels. In the pastoral work, we dedicate ourselves in a special way to preaching the popular missions according to the method of St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, and the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The vast field of the evangelization of the culture has permitted us to open ourselves up to numerous apostolic works, including different works of mercy, and the work in the media of social communication.
