Some Questions

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Do you believe in having a passion for the Eucharist, unwavering fidelity to the Pope and the Church, and filial devotion to Mary?

Do you put emphasis on the formation of the interior life through intensive prayer?

Do you believe in the radical declaration of mission and faith by wearing the cassock?

Do you place a special interest and focus in caring for the liturgy by adding to the dignity and beauty of the liturgy?

If you answer 'yes' to any of these, pay a visit to the Oblates of the Virgin Mary's (OMV) of the Institute of the Incarnate Word's (IVE) vocation pages.

The OMV in their own words:
The Oblates of the Virgin Mary are serious about seeking holiness. Centered on the Eucharist, devoted to Mary and faithful to the Magisterium, the Oblates serve the Church as teachers of authentic spirituality and heralds of the mercy of God.
The IVE in their own words:
We are just Catholic. That means we believe absolutely in the authority of the Pope and the Magisterium of the Church, and follow them without reservation and with great joy, knowing that in so doing we are humbly obedient to Christ's authority here on earth. Among other things, it also means that:We don't think praying the Rosary every day is just for old ladies (although we thank God for those old ladies)!We believe our apostolic efforts will be fruitless if they are not rooted in an intense prayer life, and so we spend an hour every day in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.We wear our religious habit.We obey our superiors.We don't monkey around with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Period.

I belong to an OMV parish, St. Peter Chanel in Hawaiian Gardens, and I never met an OMV I didn't like. I can't vouch for the order's leadership, but the eight OMV priests I've known personally are impeccably orthodox and striving for holiness (and striving to bring their parishioners with them!) Very devoted to the confessional too-- confession's available in the morning, at noon, and in the evening on every single weekday, and on Saturdays they have it in the morning and then from 4 pm straight through to 9 pm. How awesome is that? As Fr. Ed tells us, "You are God's spoiled children."
