8. TO PRESERVE

"Every man at first sets forth the good wine, and when they have drunk freely, then that which is poorer. But thou hast kept the good wine until now".

Preserve love for every season. This is what reason dictates. And the Host praises the wedding party for keeping the good wine until the very end. This is not very prudent. The wisdom of love allows it to persist when it seems all is over. The miracle of transformed love, costs those who stay...despite or in spite of circumstances, in spite or in spite of reason, in spite of...in spite of...those who stay because of...the love they have received and keep. Like servants carrying water, faithful witnesses of transformation.

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. 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)

"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)
