In this Jubilee Year, having concluded our series on Pallotti’s “God, the Infinite Love”, we are now initiating a new series of reflections. The starting point for this new series will be extracts taken from the homily of Paul VI in Frascati in September 1963, just a few months after the canonization of Saint Vincent. The first reflection takes as its starting point the following extract from that homily:

"Try to evoke the memory of the life, the example and the work [of Saint Vincent]; above all by highlighting his holiness and also reaffirming your intention to imitate his example, to work so that the great lesson offered by Saint Vincent to today's world, ... may have as a legacy a new and beautiful flowering of extraordinary initiatives... in order that Pallotti be alive in his spirit with the energies which he knew how to awaken in God's Church".

Prayer

“Sing a new song to the Lord!

Sing to the Lord all the earth!

Sing to the Lord, bless his name!

Proclaim his salvation day after day,

declare his glory among the nations,

his marvels among all the peoples”

(Ps 96:1-3)

"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)

"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)
