Oblate Spirituality
    

Oblate Spirituality, founded in and relying upon a loving Providence, is revealed in a deep, personal relationship with God and a manifest love, trust and respect for all.

Oblate Spirituality rests, therefore, upon three great Gospel truths which we embrace with our whole being: 

            -    that God has provided, does provide, and will provide,
            -    that Jesus, our Brother and Redeemer has suffered, died and risen to enable us
                 to live not only for self, but for others,
            -    that the Holy Spirit will guide and strengthen us in all situations. 



Oblate Spirituality is expressed in these special ways:

                   -  participation in the Eucharistic Liturgy
                   -  continuing and deep reflection on the Word of God
                   -  communal and personal prayer
                   -  an active discernment which seeks the will of God in obedience to the Spirit
                   -  love and compassion for one another
                  -   reaching out to heal the needy, especially victims of racism, injustice, prejudice and greed
