JUBILEE OF THE CANONISATION

OF SAINT VINCENT PALLOTTI

Prayer

God the Father of mercies,

always attentive to the needs of your sons and daughters,

we thank You for the gift of this Jubilee Year

which you willed to grant to all of us

members and collaborators of the Union of Catholic Apostolate

as a sign of Your infinite love.

Grant that we may live this time of joy

in a spirit of gratitude, humility and prayer,

so that our hearts may be filled with Your grace

which is rich in mercy and blessings.

Allow us to imitate Jesus the Apostle

after the example of Saint Vincent Pallotti:

reviving in us Faith,

strengthening in us Hope,

rekindling in us Charity,

in order to spread them throughout the world.

In this time of spiritual and apostolic renewal

we wish to have a profound experience of God,

in which your Word will be a light and guide for our steps,

the Eucharist will be food to nourish our spirit,

so that we may be authentic missionary disciples of Christ.

Grant that our communities and our families

may be transformed into cenacles

open to welcome the gifts of the Holy Spirit

together with Mary, Queen of Apostles,

and the entire pilgrim Church, for the growth of the Kingdom.

Saint Vincent Pallotti, please, help us

to live faithful to the charism and mission entrusted to us;

make us persevering on the road to sanctity,

support us in living with compassion, fraternal charity and in a spirit of communion

at this time, in the service of the Church in the world.

Amen.

"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)
