“The Oblate Charism Today: Its Essence and Its Urgency”
The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate were founded to serve the poor. Historically that foundation was also rooted in the Founder’s experience of the Cross, his sense of Mary as the special patroness of the poor, and his knowing that effective compassion and ministry can only come out of community. What does that mean for us today, seeking to live out that charism 200 years later?
