Around the Province
It is summertime. Our postulants are on their summer break. Our novices enter the last months of their novitiate year. Our priests busy themselves with parish missions, foreign mission appeals, and retreats but also take some time out for their own retreats and vacations. During this time we thank God for the many blessings of the academic and ministerial year that has now concluded and ask him for continued blessings as we enter this transition period to another academic and ministerial year. We hope you have a great summer. For some interesting videos and news from previous posts, click “read more” below left.

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
