2. Priest Oblates may insert the name of our holy Father Benedict in the Confiteor.
3. Oblates may, if they so wish, be buried in the black monastic habit, scapular and cincture.
4. The mottoes of the Benedictine Order are "PAX -- Peace": and "Ora et labora -- Pray and work." Its aim is "Ut in omnibus glorificetur Deus -- (U.I.O.G.D.) -- That in all things God may be glorified."
5. Since their Act of Oblation implies a gift of themselves to God, it is fitting that Oblates from time to time make a material offering toward the Order or the particular monastery with which they are affiliated. There are no specified dues connected with the Institute of Oblates. It is praiseworthy, however, if at the time of investiture, and of final and annual renewal of their Oblation, the Oblates make a good-will offering. Such offerings help to defray the expenses incidental to the issuance of publications, circulars,etc. If poverty prevents anyone form making an offering, there is no obligation whatever to do so, and God will accept the good will for the deed.
