sisters of the INCARNATE WORD

Our Spirituality

Our charism in the Church is to live and proclaim the Incarnation of the Word (Proposed Constitution for the Order of the Incarnate Word).  

Our Spirit calls us in a special way to represent the Incarnate Word before the world as perfectly as possible. We strive, therefore, to achieve the complete self-emptying of the Word made flesh, the simplicity and graciousness of Jesus with all, especially the children and the poor, His virginal chastity, His strength and obedience at Gethsemane, His total love, culminating on the cross.

We will to radiate Him as the warm, gracious, loving Person Who walked with people and lived in communion with them (IWBS Constitution).
