▪ On Christmas day Pope Francis, from the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, gave His Papal Blessing “Urbi et Orbi”. Addressing the crowd of about 50,000 people at St. Peter’s Square, the Holy Father expressed his Christmas wishes and delivered His message saying “My wish for a happy Christmas is a wish for fraternity”, that means, Christmas must bring stronger bonds among people from different cultures, faith and nations, a difference to rising nationalism across the globe. He continued saying that “God is a good Father and we are all brothers and sisters” … “without that bond, even our best plans and projects risk being soulless and empty.” He emphasised fraternity among individuals of every nation and culture, fraternity among people with different ideas, yet capable of respecting and listening to one another and fraternity among persons of different religions.

* Our Way of Life *

 

"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)
