Because of my brothers and friends I will cry, "Peace be with you!" Because of the house of the Lord our God, I pray for good for you (Ps 122).

Dear Sisters

I cordially greet all of you with the words of the psalm "Peace of Christ be with you!" I think that many of us have followed the latest events in the Church with attention and concern, which put a dramatic shadow on the entire community of the faithful. I am referring to the moral scandals and abuse that were committed by the people of the Church, notably the clergy. As one community - we should unite ourselves in prayer with the intention for the Holy Father, for the Church and for all those being hurt, people who experience such great difficulties and problems, that all will be touched by grace from above.

Let us pray through the intercession of our Founder, St. V. Pallotti, lover of the Church, who was doing everything for the destruction of sin and for the salvation of souls. Let us also be strengthened in love and loyalty to Christ and His Church, bearing witness to the reign of the Kingdom of God here on earth. Remembering the words of St. James: Out of the same mouth come both blessing and cursing (Jas. 3:10), let us listen to the media reports responsibly and carefully. In a fervent call of trust and faith, let us pray: Lord, have mercy on us and on the whole 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)
