The brightness of the Eastern star is almost ready to announce the birth and shines through the darkness of our lives, shaking us out of our winter comfort blankets and dark torpor.

Wake up it says !

As we get to the fourth and final week of Advent we are moving closer to a point where if we stop and pause and listen we may be able to hear.....
the heartbeat of God,
the quickening pulse pressure
the wave of love that is ready to surge and breach through into the world.

The origin of the heartbeat is electrical.

I wonder if we are ready to be recharged with the driving force and energy of God in our lives, the fuse that will spark new life in us?

The angels prepare to bring the message to the shepherds,  the same message that reaches down through the generations to reach us NOW !

Wake up they say !

"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)
