In September 2017, I came to Rome to work as a secretary in the Curia of the Abbot Primate of the Benedictine Confederation in Sant’ Anselmo on the Aventine. Since the partial integration into the community of monks was not as easy as it had sounded in preliminary discussions, I soon began to look for other contacts in the city. I knew already both the Pallottine Fathers and the Pallottine Missionary Sisters from translation assignments and, Sr. Maria Landsberger had even been to my home monastery in Dinklage for a few vacation days.

Each year on the 17th of February, the Pallottine Family commemorates Blessed Elisabetta Sanna since her beatification in September 2016. This year the occasion was celebrated on the 16th because of Ash Wednesday, which fell this year on February 17. However, the church at Salvatore in Onda unlike other years, when it was fully packed on such occasion, also with people from Sardegna, this time was half empty. The reason is the global pandemic that is still hindering society from its normal activity. We pray that Mama Sanna will accompany us during this challenging time to grow more in our faith.

"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)
