With prayer and oblation


The words of Jesus Christ in his priestly prayer give life to our life:
Father, I pray for them… and I consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth. I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word,so that they may all be one. (Jn 17: 9.19-21)
PRAYER is the constant occupation of the Oblate, either by praising God through the liturgy, through mental prayer in silence, or through daily life work.
The Oblate participates in the prayer of Christ: In the liturgical prayer, it is Christ in his priestly sacrifice and in his eternal praise of the Father. In private prayer, it is Christ in his intimate “rogo”, in silence and loneliness. And in life-prayer, it is Christ in his constant submission to the Will of the Father
THE SPIRIT OF OBLATION is the distinctive trait of the Congregation.
The Oblate is offered through Christ, with Him and in Him, who offered himself so that his disciples might be sanctified in truth. And not only for them, but also for those who will believe in Him through their word, that is, the Church, which He loved and handed himself over for her.
Through this oblation, we offer our whole being and life to the will of the heavenly Father, to live in continuous immolation for love, by the faithful and constant fulfilment of that divine will, to which we abandon ourselves with total self-oblivion. (Constitutions 85)
