    The first years of the institute were intense, with ardor and enthusiasm, a new work of the Holy Spirit. Only one year into its foundation, thanks to donations and God's providence, the Institute was able to acquire a farm (called La Finca) where the seminarians were able to fulfill their desires to live out religious life.
