We claim as our Founder, St. Vincent Pallotti, a 19th century Roman priest, on fire with love for the infinite God, a man who inspired each person on his path in life, to join him in the apostolic mission of the Church: on a micro-scale in his own immediate environment, and on a macro-scale – going out to the whole world, if such be God's will. For Pallotti each person possesses a wealth of gifts from God: personal talents, special blessings from God, including a disease or handicap, offered for apostolic purposes.

"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)
