Around the Province
It’s been quite a week for our OMV U.S. Province. The week began with a seminar by Fr. Tim Gallagher, OMV, and a visit to the seminary by several young men interested in becoming Oblates of the Virgin Mary. The week continued with a very busy Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. These items are the focus for this week’s “Around the Province.”
New Bio of Venerable Lanteri Is Here!
Begin Again: The Life and Spiritual Legacy of Bruno Lanteri
Now Available for Purchase: Crossroad, 2013
In this biography of the Venerable Bruno Lanteri (1759-1830), founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, Fr. Gallagher tells the story of a man who served God and the Church courageously in times of persecution, ready to pay the price. Ven. Lanteri’s lifelong struggles with health, his dedicated service to priests, religious, and laity that rendered him “the man of a hundred tongues and a hundred arms,” his love for the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, his deep prayer, his struggles to overcome his limitations, his enduring quest for holiness, his message of God’s mercy to the disheartened, and his invitation to begin again in times of failure, are detailed here. This book is now available. To order, click here.
“A man who sought always to remain the background is brought forward in this book so that all can begin again to discover his virtues and appreciate his influence today.”–Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicagoread more
