Through the education of youth, the Oblate bring the youth to love and respect the gifts that God has given them, in such a way that they will strive to develop them
We teach with humility, and simplicity, bringing Christ to the classroom, so that in this way we serve as directors and guides to the People of God on route to the Kingdom of God.
We bring healing to the sick, following the example of Christ, who cured the sick (Mt.8) and who instructed his disciples to go out and preach the Kingdom of God. Each and every Oblate is aware that an essential condition for success consist in the faithful practice of the Constitution and above all the Directory
We are unified by the bond of love which is the bond of perfection. This unity perfected by the bond of Christ, impels us to live our lives in communion with one another with God who is our strength. As Oblate we work for the good of the Church and the growth of the Congregation. Our unity is our strength and our Spiritual Exercises is our guide throughout life.
St. Francis de Sales says, "To be perfect in ones vocation is nothing else than to perform the duties and office to which one is obliged, solely for the honour and love of God, referring to His holy Glory. Whoever works in this manner may be called perfect in his state, a man according to the heart and will of God
Lord of Harvest. BLESS young people with the courage to respond to your call. Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things.
INSPIRE all your disciples to mutual love and giving-for vocations blossom in the good soil of faithful people. INSTILL those in religious life, parish ministries, and families with the confidence and grace to invite others to embrace the bold and noble path of a life consecrated to you. UNITE us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament, so that we may cooperate with you in building your reign of mercy and truth, of justice and peace. Amen
