Our Superior General, Sr. Izabela Świerad desires to express her warm thanks for the many prayers, wishes, cards, gestures of friendship, letters, and phone calls, which she received this month for the occasion of her Feast Day. These many remembrances were very touching and supportive. Be assured of her sincere care for each one of you, as she offers her daily prayers for you.

▪ With great interest and prayer we accompanied the State Visit of Pope Benedict XVI in his home country of Germany. His message "Where God is, there is a future. Wherever God is present, there is hope: new and often unexpected horizons open up beyond the present and the ephemeral” – so much hope is inspiring, yet it is an inviting challenge in a more and more secular society and world.

▪ The starting signal for a new working year after a short summer pause was the celebration of our Superior General´s Feastday on September 3rd. High point of the day was the Holy Mass presided by Rector General Fr. Jacob Nampudakam with invited guest priests, sisters, and the Pallottine communities.

"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)
