Pedro de Muñoz is the founder and still the present chaplain of
OASIS. He is the former Vicar of the Parish of St. Felix of Barcelona,
Spain, and was ordained in 1952 at the 35th International
as a Pious Union approved by the late Bishop Gregorio Modrego in
1965. Later it became a Congregation following the contemplative
life, as an oasis of peace and silence in the midst of the world
today. The new Constitutions were approved by Archbishop Lefebvre
Taking of the Habit
OASIS has only
one purpose, exclusively sacerdotal: to bring as many holy priests
as possible to God, by offering one’s life for the sanctification
of these consecrated souls according to the spirit of OASIS. The
motto is expressed in the words of Our Lord: “...for them I sanctify
myself”. (John 17, 19)
of OASIS is based on that of St. Francis de Sales, giving more importance
to the practice of interior virtues such as obedience, silence,
humility, without neglecting the value of external mortification.
This is expressed in the word “OASIS”.
– PRAYER: There are two hours of mental prayer daily. In
addition there is the recitation of the Breviary (excluding Matins),
the Holy Rosary and vocal prayers.
– LOVE: A total giving of one’s self in strict cloister.
A very special love for Mary. Love for all priests – it is a life
– SUBMISSION: Life of perfect obedience, totally giving up
of one’s own will, practicing humility, the virtue which characterizes
– IMMOLATION: This love leads to sacrifice one’s life for
priest, immolating oneself day by day in the accomplishment of duty
and hidden from the eyes of the world.
– SILENCE: Silence is kept the whole day except for the two
periods of recreation- after the midday meal and after dinner. There
is no evening recreation during Advent and Lent.
Any young aspirant
possessing normal health can lead the life of OASIS, which is simple
and balanced. The age of entry is between 18 and 35 years old.
It is necessary to have a docile and joyful character with a great
desire for holiness; and thus are excluded those of a melancholic
and neurotic disposition. A basic standard of education is also
required. God could sanctify the world without any help, but He
wants to accomplish this work with holy souls, especially holy priests.
