As our Religious Family was born in these times, our proper law makes its own the denunciation of Saint John Paul II, who, already in 1992, said, “Today they have extended in a great way the range of the abuses of freedom, and this leads to new forms of slavery, very dangerous ones, because they are disguised under the appearance of freedom. This is the paradox, the profound drama of our time: in the name of freedom, slavery is imposed.”
We consider that human freedom nowadays has been attacked probably as never before. For example, the biological, mental, and moral manipulation that the new order agendas are causing, the informational slavery to which the means of communication are submitting us, freedom apart from truth—proper of liberalism, the uncontrolled explosion of all sorts of addictions due to the eclipse of ethics and morals, etc.
Such freedom is found in the very beginnings of our vocation as consecrated persons in the Institute of the Incarnate Word. For who can deny the fact that “every vocation is born from the encounter of two freedoms: that which is Divine, and that which is human,” and that our vocation to love the Incarnate Word above all things is nothing other than a call to freedom and to happiness? Furthermore, it is precisely by the full exercise of our freedom that we have deliberately decided to bind ourselves to God in loving service. That is why our formula of profession says, “I, N.N., freely make an oblation of my entire being to God.”
