Vow of Loyalty

I do hereby solemnly swear to uphold, to protect, to honor, and to defend the LORD God, His only son Jesus Christ, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, to the death, against any and all enemies foreign and domestic. I do hereby pledge obedience and submission to the will of the LORD God, to the will of His only son Jesus Christ, and to the laws and teachings of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. By my blood, my honor, and my own free will, I make this vow unto eternity.

About Us

The Order of the Magnificat of the Mother of God, requested by the Most Blessed Virgin Herself at La Salette, France, was founded in Canada in 1962.

The Order includes priests and religious Brothers and Sisters, some of them coming from various Congregations for the purpose of preserving their respective identity and goals, but all following a common Rule: the one dictated by the Mother of God at La Salette in 1846 and approved by Leo XIII in 1879.

The Order also includes disciples, that is, lay members, either single or married, who live in the community of goods with the religious and share their labors. It also includes tertiaries, lay members living in the world, but more deeply involved in the activities of the Order than the ordinary faithful.

The Order of the Magnificat of the Mother of God exists and operates under its own Hierarchy. Its faith, doctrine, tradition and practices are Christian Catholic. While firmly wishing to return to the evangelical simplicity of the early days of Christianity, the Order wants to keep intact the doctrinal teachings conveyed with continuity, throughout the ages, by the Saints and Doctors of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Order of the Magnificat of the Mother of God, also known by the name The Apostles of Infinite Love, is legally recognized in Canada by a federal charter as well as a provincial charter in Quebec. Since 1973, The Apostles of Infinite Love are registered as a Charitable Organisation with Canada Revenue Agency. The Order likewise possesses charters in the United States, France, Guadeloupe, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador. The Order is also established in Italy and in South Africa.

Besides perpetual adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, prayer, study and work of all kinds, the Community lends itself to all the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. However, the particular goal of the Order is the preservation of the Deposit of the Faith by religious teaching in all its forms to adults and children. Another specific goal is the fight against all the abuses that have brought about the decadence of the clergy, the religious state and Christian society. The Order also labors in view of Christian unity, so desired by Jesus Christ: unity in the truth.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of St. Judas Maccabaeus
