Letter of the two General Superiors of our Sisterly Pallottine Congregations for Pentecost 2019

Come Holy Spirit

 and

Renew the Face of the Earth

Dear Sisters,

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.

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 ?

Luke 10:25-37

Dear Sisters,

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).

Superior General for the Feast of Presentation of the Lord (2019)

… According to your word.

Luke 1:38

Dear Sisters,

On the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord together with the whole Church, we look to Mary, who faithfully kept all matters in her heart (see Luke2, 51). Mary, while preserving and contemplating the things of God, invites us to be the house of the Word of God that we may protect and preserve it as rich soil that brings fruit - the fulfilled promise of a new life.

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)

"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)
