THE INSTITUTE OF ST. GABRIEL
The Institute of St. Gabriel
the Archangel (the Gabrielites), for young and middle-aged men who,
while remaining in their families and in their own fields of work, aim
for personal sanctification and work
for the Pauline apostolate.
It concerns laymen. From the very start, the attention and care of Fr.
Alberione had been directed to the laity, as a valid and indispensable
support of the Pious Society of St. Paul. Precisely for this reason
the Union of Pauline Cooperators was started. Many members of that union
have joined this Secular Institute. They were inspired by the principles
of the Apostolic Constitution "Provvida Mater," which opens
to the laity the possibility of remaining in the world, in their families,
and at their work, which is offered as leaven hidden in the mass to
foster its Chrsitian transformation.
Upheld and guided in the observance of the evangelical counsels, according
to their personal abilities and in freer situations, they can more effectively
develop the seeds planted in them with baptism and their special vocation
and cooperate in the consecration of the world to Chrsit.
