Dear Brothers and Sisters in the family of St. Vincent Pallotti, dear Friends

A grateful heart is a thankful heart, is a joyful heart! With these words I wish to express my joy and gratitude to you for the many wishes, cards, letters and gifts that I have received on the occasion of my Feastday. Thank you for your prayers, support, words of encouragement and every sign of love and friendship. I am truly strengthened by your faith, unity, spiritual and physical presence. September 3rd was indeed a beautiful day with many joyful surprises. It will surely remain in my heart. Thank you.  With a gift of prayer-

▪ Pope Francis once again appealed to all Christians for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our Planet. Considering this call, here in Rome, the presidents of the Council of the European Bishops` Conference (CCEE) and the Conference of European Churches (CEC) held a joint meeting and invited the faithful to take part in the Season of Creation from 1 September to 4 October. It is celebrated under the heading of Jubilee for the Earth, precisely in this year that marks the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. In the Holy Scriptures, a Jubilee is a sacred time to remember, return, rest, restore, and rejoice.

"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)
