In the ‘Practical daily reminder to imitate our Lord Jesus Christ’ (OOCC III, pages 34 – 39) St. Vincent Pallotti proposes the following:

Before beginning any activity in the daily routine:

- reflect first of all on what would be the thinking of the holy mind of Jesus in these concrete situations;

- consider what the feelings of his divine Heart would be;

In situations in which one must speak:

- ask oneself what words of humility, gentleness, charity, patience and prudence would Jesus use;

- consider just how measured his words would  be, he would use neither too many nor too few words;

In the use of all material and created things that are necessary to life:

- consider the moderate use that Jesus Christ made of these;

- with ones imagination try to see Jesus, and using the imagination and in a spirit of reviving or intensifying ones faith, think of the God-man who became for us both an example and a model;

- it is Jesus Christ himself who is the practical rule or guide for both the interior and outward life of the Christian;

- an invitation is made to trust in the grace with which he wishes to bless us abundantly in order that we may imitate him.

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)
