St. Vincent Pallotti

My God, my Mercy, my Paradise, you have given me the desire to work for Your glory and for the salvation of souls; increase this desire in me so that I do not wish anything other than a infinitely burning flame for all that contributes to Your glory and to the salvation of my neighbour. My God, act in me as you will. Expand my desires. Give me the grace to act as You will … in the same way that You act.

God, my all, now and always, infinitely mine in supreme suffering, in infinite love, in receiving your grace without enjoying it, taking pleasure only that you be infinitely glorified and that I be infinitely held in contempt: this would be my Paradise. My Jesus, I am unworthy to participate in your humble, poor, painfilled, charitable, arduous and despised life, however you allow me this participation in your infinite mercy.  (Vincent Pallotti, cf. OOCC X, 726-729)

"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)
