LET THERE BE FEW WORDS AND MANY DEEDS

AND LET THEM BE DONE WELL.

St. Vincent Pallotti’s Feastday, 2022

Dear Sisters,

As we celebrate the feast day of our Founder St. Vincent Pallotti, it is my ardent desire to display before you the portrait, which you see above, painted by a homeless young man, who is originally from Poland but was living on the streets of Rome. Currently he is accompanied and encouraged by a Redemptorist priest and Sr. Hanna Kiedrowska, SAC for a promising life in the future. The testimony of this young man during our XXI General Chapter, called our attention to reflect deeper on our role as consecrated women in responding to the needs of the poor and homeless in today’s world.

Wishing you Happy New Year with new beginnings

 

To all the Pallottine Sisters, friends and benefactors,

With 2022 knocking on our doors, there is no better way to thank you for your prayers, wishes and kindness shown to us in the past year to live our Pallottine Charism and mission fully with zeal. As we are eager to welcome the new year with new vitality and newness, let us not allow our peace to be disturbed, not even in view of the difficulties and sufferings of this present time. Indeed, sufferings, trials and darkness should not undermine but build up our hope, a hope which does not deceive because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Birth of Jesus who became fully  human, just like us.

 Dear Sisters:

 With joy and hope, together with the Councilors, I send my Christmas greetings to each of you. I  am very grateful for the prayers and affection with which you have supported us during the XXI General Chapter of our Congregation that took place recently in Rome. The resonance of it you will read in the final message that we have sent to each Sister through the Provincial, Regional and Delegature Superiors.

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)
