Institute of the Incarnate Word
The Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE) is a Catholic institute of consecrated life which is both a clerical and religious institute. Its members are priests, seminarians and consecrated brothers. Since it is a clerical institute, it is directed by priests that exercise the Sacred Orders. The majority of our members consist of priests or people studying for the priesthood.

In 1521, the pagan queen, upon seeing thee the image of the Holy Infant in his kingly majesty, fell into unexplainable emotion and asked to be baptized. Having been christened as Juana, Antonio Pigafetta gave her that same image as a baptism gift.
After the Ambush of Mactan, the Spaniards left the newfound islands, and in it the image of the Holy Infant.
1565, King Philip II sent Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Fray Andres Urdaneta for a missionary adventure in those newfound islands. they found the image of the Holy Child, although reduced as a pagan god, but was held by the natives with the highest veneration. As Nick Joaquin said, he became their last and greatest pagan god in order to lead them to their True God.
From that small island of Cebú, the reign of the Holy Infant spread throughout the 7,700 islands of the archipelago (later, 600 of these islands were stolen by invaders), which now comprise the unique nation of the Philippines, las islas Filipinas. The Sto Niño softened the heart of natives, and the conversion to the true faith was greatly aided by the miracle of the Child-King. Presently, the devotion to the Sto. Niño is one of the biggest in the country.
On this day, the whole Filipinas celebrates the cause of her foundation and her identity, of her culture and tradition.

The novitiate, through which life in an institute is begun, is arranged so that the novices better understand their divine vocation, and indeed one which is proper to the institute, experience the manner of living of the institute, and form their mind and heart in its spirit, and so that their intention and suitability are tested.
