Mary showed us the true meaning of faith and love in her life on earth. She is an example to us of how to live according to the gospel. With St. Vincent Pallotti we venerate her as Queen of Apostles and Patroness of the Catholic Apostolate. (Our Way of Life, 13)

I beg you, O Immaculate Mother of God, Queen of the Apostles, to deign to unite yourself to me, as an unworthy son, with all the angels and archangels and saints in Paradise, to thank the Holy Trinity that I have been given the gift of faith. I am happy, dear Mother Mary, that the Church (…), greets you with the most august title of Queen of Apostles because while this title gives honour to you, it gives courage to me. I implore you with the affection of Mother already experienced by me to unite yourself to miserable me and to the whole heavenly court (…), in order to receive the merits of the Apostolate in order to obtain for myself and for all, now and forever, the gift to commit everything in a special way to the propagation of faith in the entire world so that soon, and very soon that moment predicted by your divine Son will arrive, that moment desired by you and the whole of Heaven, and feared by the whole of hell, that can be seen forever to the end of the world: that moment when there will be one Fold under one Shepherd. Amen. (V. Pallotti, OOCC XI, 85-87)

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)

"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)
