"It was through the Blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus came into the world, and it is also through her that he must reign in the world"

The Religious of the Family of the Incarnate Word have their spirituality anchored in the sacrosanct mystery of the Incarnation, the mystery of the Word made flesh in the womb of the Virgin Mary.

 

For this reason, we wish “to manifest our love and gratitude to the Blessed Virgin, by making a fourth vow of slavery to Mary according to the spirituality of Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort. This will secure her indispensable help in perpetuating the Incarnation in all things.” 1

​​​​

At the same time, we want to encourage all those who have not yet consecrated themselves to Mary to do so according to the doctrine presented to us by the great Father de Montfort in the Treatise on True Devotion.

Simply because this consecration “is a smooth, short, perfect and sure way of attaining union with our Lord, in which Christian perfection consists.” 2

Rege Oh Maria

Rege Oh Maria

We want to promote some means that will help us live this consecration more deeply doing “everything through Mary, with Mary, in Mary, and for Mary,”3 seeking only to establish the reign of Christ through the reign of Mary.

On this page we have made material available in order to deepen Marian devotion and Marian slavery in the spirituality and figure of the “tireless preacher and lover of the Incarnate Word and of his Most Holy Mother,” Saint Louis Marie Grignion
de Montfort. Information about the pilgrimage of the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word to the places related to this great Apostle in 2020 is also available on this page.
