My dearest brothers and sisters in the Union of Catholic Apostolate,

I greet each of you in this way in the grace that the Lord has given us by calling us, as sons and daughters of Saint Vincent Pallotti, to revive faith and rekindle charity in our days, in order to unite everyone in Christ for the good of all people and in service of the Church.

As one body, inflamed by the love of Christ which forms the substantial constituent of our Pallottine Family (cfr. OOCC III, 137-138), we will receive yet another great gift from the Lord on September 17th, 2016: the beatification of our very dearly loved Venerable Elisabetta Sanna, the first lay member to be raised by decree of the Holy Church to the altars.

In gratitude to God and in gratitude to St. Vincent Pallotti and the Venerable Elisabetta Sanna, the UAC CCC would like to invite the communities, houses, groups, individual members, co-workers, friends, sympathizers, and every Christian to pray a novena in preparation for the beatification, especially in the days September 8 to September 16, and implore abundant graces from the Lord for the Pope, the Church, the whole world, and our family.

We ask Elisabetta Sanna to be with us to pray the novena and how she can say: "All are of God, all are of Jesus. I can not live further from God. Jesus is my heart, and I am Jesus! ".

Maria, Advocate and Refuge of Sinners, Queen of Saints, Mother of mercy (cf.. OOCC XIII, 187), pray for us!

"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)

"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)
