Prayer before the 20th General Chapter

God of Infinite Love and Mercy, You called us to follow your Son, Jesus Christ. He came to spread the fire of love over all the earth and desired that every human   heart be aflame with that fire, so that everyone may know your infinite love. His teaching and actions were permeated by this desire which found its highpoint in the Mystery of the Cross. This same love inspired our Holy Founder who followed with tireless ardor in Jesus’ footsteps and wanted to be like him in everything he did. We, the spiritual daughters of St Vincent Pallotti, ask you to transform our hearts, enliven us with your Spirit and fill us with that same desire.

Unite us in love and renew our apostolic zeal so that we can carry out our Pallottine charism faithfully and creatively. Provide us the light of your Spirit in discerning your will to meet the challenges  of the present time.

Give us courage and energy to fulfil your will. With renewed zeal and joy, may we meet the needs of our brothers and sisters and carry the Good News of Christ’s resurrection. Amen.

Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
