“FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO!”

"Observe how the lilies of the field grow…

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.

Ernst Ginsberg said: "Anyone who sees and feels frost and ice, believing that it was summer before: that’s real a fool. And he is a much bigger fool, when he dreams, that it could come the summer again. And exactly this is the safest truth on earth."

“Learn from the flowers as they grow: they don’t work and they don’t spin. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, will he not much more you? You of little faith! Your father in heaven knows what you need”. Mt 6

We’re invited to look anew and deeper at the miracle of creation.

God’s creation carries in every season the message that God knows about me and about us. He knows the plight of the church and the whole world, including the concerns of our world-wide congregation. God’s concern for us includes the fact that we also use everything possible for the life of the world.

"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)

"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)
