BISHOP SEBASTIAO BANDEIRA COELHO FROM COROATÁ, BRAZIL, VISITS THE PALLOTTINE MISSIONARY SISTERS IN LIMBURG

On Sunday, September 9, 2018, we received the visit of Bishop Sebastiao of Coroatá in the Northeast of Brazil. Our Sisters live and serve in two cities of his diocese, in Timbiras and Codó. In light of the friendship that has grown over all the years between his diocese and the Pallottine Missionary Sisters, Bishop Sebastiao was delighted to be able to visit the Sisters in Kloster Marienborn during his stay in Germany.

He celebrated Sunday Mass with us and he encouraged us in his homily: “just trust! Don’t be scared!” During lunch there was a vivid sharing. Before finishing, the Bishop blessed the Sisters in Limburg, and all the Sisters of the German Province and of the whole Congregation.

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)
