Enflamed with the spirit of an apostle, Venerable Fr. Pio Bruno Lanteri (1759-1830) founded the Congregation of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary in 1826 in northern Italy.

He taught the Oblates to attend tirelessly to the task of giving the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, spreading good books, and forming both the clergy and the laity, according to their specific vocation, to become effective and zealous apostolic workers. The vision he lived is the vision we strive to realize.
