About St. Vincent Pallotti (source: Wikipedia)
"Dear Sisters, the Church looks to you to "speak" of Christ to those whom you serve and to "show" him to them. Such witness demands that you yourselves first contemplate the face of Christ... In this way you will not only continue to "see" God with the eyes of faith but will also be effective in making his presence "perceptible" to others through the example of your own lives - lives marked by the zeal and compassion for the poor so readily associated with your beloved founder." (John Paul II, to the General Chapter members in 2004)
St. Vincent took the prayer life of Jesus as an example for himself. He was convinced that he had to go to Jesus every day and ask of Him: “Lord, teach me to pray”. In the course of his day he felt that it was almost an obligation on him to reserve certain times for prayer and meditation. St. Vincent was a man of constant prayer, he prayed everywhere and anywhere. His spiritual diary is a virtual river of prayers. In his prayers he did not borrow words or feelings, rather they were born of what was happening in his soul and they expressed what he was experiencing and feeling. He attained a remarkable level of contemplative prayer; his life was prayer and his every action was a conscious and deliberate glorification of God.
