The book, Men of Mercy, Sons of Mary: The Lanterian Way, is the first to formally introduce the 200-year old Marian-Ignatian spirituality of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary (OMV) for a wide audience. Active in five continents around the world, the Lanterian Way has appealed to men, women, and youth for its warmth, compassion, and gentleness. Based on field work in the United States and interviews with approximately 100 laypeople and men of the OMV congregation, the book offers a rare glimpse of the spiritual heirs of Venerable Bruno Lanteri, whose cause for canonization is currently underway.
“This book will serve Oblates and those who love Venerable Lanteri for years to come.”
—Fr. Jim Walther, OMV, Provincial
