One of the blog's main purposes is to give the broadest possible publicity to the best religious orders. Among the male orders, I personally deem particularly well the Institute of the Incarnate Word, which was set up in 1984 by Fr. Carlos Miguel Buela.
I do appreciate very much the devotion whom the affiliates celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with. I do also highly esteem their faith to the Pontifical Ministry, their adherence to St.Thomas of Aquinas' doctrine, and the frequent use of cassock. I also like very much their missionary spirit, as they have sent missionaries in very difficult scenarios, i.e. Irak, Palestine, Egypt, Kazakstan, Albania and other countries where the priests' life is in constant danger. The Fathers of the Institute of the Incarnate Word are mainly employed in the apostolate of the parish activities.
Their apostolic zeal attracts many young men. The Institute gathers many new vocations and it is nowadays one of the few expanding religious institutes. I hope that the vocations will keep increasing, because the Catholic Church needs new priests and consacrated father endowed with a good ascetic and doctrinal preparation, with fraternal charity, and strenous dedication to the salvation of the redeemed by the Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ.
Young men and boys interested in the Institute may contact the American community for a vocational experience. Their e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
