The fruit of this particular retreat meditation on the Oblate Rule of Life:
Indeed, what did Our Lord do when he wanted to convert the universe?
“He chose a number of apostles and disciples whom he himself trained in piety, and he filled them with his Spirit. These men he sent forth, once they had been schooled in his teaching, to conquer the world which, before long, was to bow to his holy rule.”.
Thus models are available, it remains only to imitate them.
