The Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE) is a missionary and Marian Catholic religious order founded by Fr. Carlos Miguel Buela, IVE on March 25th, 1984. Along with the Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará (SSVM) and the IVE Third Order it forms the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word. The Institute’s charism and spirituality is rooted in the mystery of Christ’s Incarnation. Not only is this divine mystery essential to the Redeemer’s work of salvation, but it is also an essential aspect of true devotion to Mary as taught by St. Louis Grignion de Montfort. The members of the IVE make their own Montfort’s Marian spirituality by professing a fourth vow of consecration to Mary, committing themselves to be all for Jesus in Mary.
