SSVM Taking of the Holy Habit

SSVM Taking of the Holy Habit - Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará

The religious of our Institute must wear the Holy Habit, which is a sign of their consecration and witness of their poverty (Const. 154).

...it is of a great importance to wear permanently an exterior sign of a religious habit… (Const. 154).

“…In that way the blue scapular, which represents the Divine Word, put over the grey habit, which symbolizes the humanity, is an eloquent statement about the great mystery of the Incarnation, in which the Word was united with our nature and dressed in our flesh…”
(Fr. Buela, IVE, Las Servidoras, Tomo I).

“In each Servant there should be a love for her Habit, it should be like her skin, so that united to the Incarnate Word, who united Heaven and Earth, she may flower into all kinds of good works and be for all the good scent of Christ (2 Cor 2:15).”
(Fr. Buela, IVE, Las Servidoras, Tomo I).
