Vincent Pallotti desired to risk all in order to gain God and be united with Him. He aspired to make God his sole good, to whom he sacrificed everything. Let us be inflamed with his enthusiasm, his love and his yearning to dedicate himself totally, and let us bear the sufferings and the hardships of daily life with joy, in order to come closer to Jesus and become more and more fruitful for His Kingdom. His prayer shows this attitude. Let us pray with him:
My God, I would wish to have infinite wills and an infinite number of lives so that I might sacrifice them all for the honour of the name of God, of Jesus, of Mary, and step by step,  of the angels and of the saints. (OOCC X, p. 109-110)

We recall that our Holy Founder has given us the life of our Lord Jesus Christ as our fundamental rule, so as to imitate him in our life in community and in our apostolate. The life of our Lord Jesus Christ: this means all of the life of Jesus, his infancy, his youth, his so called ‘hidden life’ and his public life. Pallotti was convinced that Jesus wanted him to meditate on his ‘hidden’ life, because he was convinced of the need to know everything about Jesus, to know the ‘total’ Jesus. We are accustomed to meditating and reflecting on the public life of Jesus, it is relatively easy to do this because we have the help of Gospel texts that tell us of his public life.

"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)
