for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. Mt 6

In these days we experience the splendour of the flowers in the meadows and in the gardens.

Fruits and vegetables promise a good harvest. The weather might be appropriate, not too dry and not too wet. And we have done everything we possibly could do: Sown at the right time and plants are cared for. So it would have to succeed with the harvest.

“FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO!” The Gospel beckons us to look even deeper. Nature is delivered to every weather! Depending on the climate, the first buds in winter are exposed to frost and ice.

Labirynth

 

A Labyrinth, what is it?

A Labyrinth is an invitation for us, going the way to the middle.

This way I can see as a parable for my own way during my life.

I can go this way with an idea or with a prayer, open for that what arises.

In the Labyrinth I meet myself.

When I walk through the Labyrinth

I can realize

from what I live

what really helps me

what really is my centre

The Eternal Word

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. .. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as oft he only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. St. John 1, 1.4. and 14.

* 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)

_____________________

"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)

_____________________

"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)

_____________________

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

_____________________

"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)
