8. THE WORD OF GOD – DIALOGUE

Patroness of the month - Mary, Mother of the Word, pray for us

Hear, O Israel! Mary, daughter of Zion and Mother of the Word, fulfilled this Old Testament’s invitation perfectly. She preserved it, pondered upon it and faithfully hid it in Her heart. This allows us to be more mindful of God and of man.

Intention of the month

Let us pray for all apostles and missionaries, so that the Word of God may always be proclaimed, the Eucharist may be celebrated and that the gift of God's Love may be brought to all people.

 7. TESTIMONY - CHALLENGES OF CONTEMPORARY TIMES

Patroness of the month  -  Mary, Star of the new evangelization, pray for us

Mysticism of everyday life. It delights, attracts and gives us wings. And why does it feel so impossible? Miriam of Nazareth was a woman of simple everyday life. A woman clothed with the sun: Mother who is pregnant with the Word. Everything became possible in Her. She invariably intercedes for the world, protects her children and calls them to conversion and prayer, to immerse themselves in grace, because the Gospel resonates most fully through what is simple, ordinary.  Gospel of Life. Impossible?

Intention of the month

Let us pray for new vocations so that there will be no shortage of those who, following Jesus, will devote themselves to the work of evangelization.

 6. MISSION AND BEING SENT – Fraternity

 Patroness of the month  -  Mary, Mother of good counsel, pray for us

The Annunciation begins Mary’s mission and Her being sent. From then on, Mary no longer belongs to Herself. Everything in Her, full of grace from the beginning, is now taken over by God. Mary, aware of the gift and the mystery that she carries within Herself, goes out to meet the other. Always open and ready to share, to give, to participate. The awareness of being sent makes one fit for the mission, and the mission blooms and bears fruit as it draws sap from the roots of the experience of being sent. The mystery of Mary is an invitation to sisterhood.

Intention of the month

Let us pray for unbelievers, so that, despite obstacles and dangers, filled with the light of the Holy Spirit, they may see the signs of God's goodness and the testimony of the good deeds of those people who believe, and joyfully find and confess faith in the one and true God, the Father of all people, and the way of salvation.

5. COMMUNITY OF DISCIPLES OF JESUS - COMMUNION

 

Patroness of the month   -  Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us

Unity in diversity: the nature, gift and task of the Church community. How to be together and to live together, one with the other and one for the other? We need Mary’s trust and openness to what is new, different, unknown. The Church needs to discover Her maternal heart which beats for unity.

Intention of the month

Let us pray for the Pope and all the clergy of the Church, so that God would keep them healthy, safe, and faithful to the Gospel.

4. THE CONGREGATION TODAY - REKINDLE

Patroness of the month   -  Mary, Seat of wisdom, pray for us

Life is a constant change. And at the same time, it is staying in what was "in the beginning." Life requires discernment. Mary, wise and attentive, was always alert to God's will. She is the woman of discernment. In Bethlehem and Nazareth, on the way to Ain-Karim and on the way from Jerusalem, at the wedding at Cana and at the Cross, she remained "here and now", seeking the will of the One who chose Her.

Intention of the month

Let us pray for our Congregation, so that through a fuller participation in the mystery of Christ and the Church, we may creatively develop the charism of St. Vincent Pallotti and be authentic witnesses of God, the Infinite Love.

3. CENACLE – THE PRESENCE

Patroness of the month -   Mary, Queen of Apostles, pray for us

Wherever there is a human, bonds are born. Where there is a Mother, ties become strong and faithful. Mary, present in the Cenacle teaches us how to be together, in unity. The Cenacle of Broken Bread teaches us communion. The Pallottine Cenacle is Mary, the Apostles, you, me, and always someone else ...

Intention of the month

Let us pray for Christian unity. May all those who have been sanctified by one Baptism unite in true faith and love in one Church.

2. PALLOTTINE SISTER – VOCATION AND IDENTITY

Patroness of the month   -  Mary, Mother of Beautiful Love, pray for us

Consecration completely embraces the identity of the called person. It embraces, penetrates and transforms. Sometimes slowly and gradually, sometimes abruptly and quickly. Like the Spirit that descended on Mary. She was the first consecrated. As if in the blink of an eye, She became aware of Her new identity and new calling. A miracle of grace and mercy! To be with Jesus, to follow Him, to love and live.

Intention of the month

Let us pray for the Holy Church, extended to the whole world – may it persevere with unshakable faith by confessing the Name of the Lord.

1. WORLD - THE ENCOUNTER

Patroness of the month   -   Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us

The heart of Mary. Mary was attentive to the concerns of Her heart. Her Immaculate Heart. And in it, there was and there is, the whole world. She was attentive and alert.  Attentive with the mindfulness that embraces each and every one of us, embraces the world. Maybe that is how the secret of the meeting is born? Carrying the world in one’s heart and living in the world mindfully, but not belonging to it.

Intention of the month

Let us pray for the rulers of states: may our God and Lord direct their minds and hearts according to His will, so that there would be lasting peace and the prosperity of nations throughout the world.
