Our Religious Institution has a special obligation
toward people in missionary situation,
especially where faith is no longer rooted
or has never been established.
In light of the 100th anniversary of the publication of the Apostolic Letter of Pope Benedict XVth Maximum Illud, Pope Francis announced the month of October 2019, as an Extraordinary Mission month with the theme: Baptized and sent: The Church of Christ on mission in the world. We, Pallottine missionaries, also want to celebrate this special time in a dignified and fruitful way. Therefore, I would like to encourage you all to intensify your reflection on mission, to revive your bonds with Christ and the Gospel, and to help all who seek to meet the living God.
Come Holy Spirit
Renew the Face of the Earth
On this special day of Pentecost, as we gather in the Community of the Pallottine Sisters in Grottaferrata, we two General Superiors of the Pallottine Family would like to greet you all with the words of the Risen Christ: Peace be with you. St. Paul exhorts us: Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts … and be thankful (Col 3:15). Therefore, may thankfulness fill our hearts today toward the Holy Spirit, who so generously poured out His gifts on our Founder, St. Vincent Pallotti and bestowed on him a universal charism to bring to life the oeuvre of the Union of the Catholic Apostolate in the Church.
Resurrectio Domini, spes nostra!
Today, together with the whole Church, we sing the joyful Alleluia! This is the day the Lord has made! Let us rejoice in it and give joy! (Ps 118). I greet you with the Easter acclamation, Christ is Risen! He is truly risen! This joyful paschal message gives us deep amazement and gratitude - the Lord has truly risen! He overcame death and brought life!
What must I do to inherit eternal life ?
The mystery of God is open to a person that can see and hear. The source of the inner spiritual senses of every human being is the heart. It is a place of dialogue and encounter; it is an ability to see and listen. It is "our hidden center, the place of truth and decision in which we choose life or death, it is a place of covenant with God" (see: Catechism of the Catholic Church 2562).
