     If in Mary all the centuries and all the   

     generations will have to admire the wonder of  

     your grace,  in me all mankind will have to

     admire the miracle of your mercy." (OOCC X, 303)

Dearest Sisters, 

In this Marian month, we celebrate with the Universal Church two great and important feasts: Pentecost and the feast of Queen of Apostles. The Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1 ff) remind us that on the day of Pentecost, in the hall of the Cenacle, the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles with great power, He descended  upon them as wind and fire as the Spirit who creates and renews, initiating the mission of the Church in the world.

My God, My Mercy…

St. Vincent Pallotti

 

To All the Superiors and Missionary Sisters of the Catholic Apostolate

Dear Sisters,

On our calendars, spring has just begun. Outside appears as if nothing has happened…, blue skies embracing the earth, sun's rays peeking into the windows bringing warmth, flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and a warm spring breeze delicately blows around. We all love spring because it comes to us in light colors, with hope, with a smile, with new life and warmth. Such is a nature: faithful to God’s law and grows and develops according to its own natural rhythm.

Keep your eyes fixed

on the outstretched arms of Christ crucified,

let yourself be saved over again.   

Pope Francis

Dear Sisters,

We begin another Lent: a unique time of grace that invites us to deeper reflection on Christs´ Paschal Mystery. Our personal and community life - through baptism and consecration - is marked so much by the events of Jesus´ Death and Resurrection, that this mystery is its center. It is the heart and the source that constantly brings us the gift of new life, freed from sin and death.

Thanksgiving will never get off from my lips …

Dear Sisters

On the feast of St. Vincent Pallotti - with his words: Let every day be celebrated as thanksgiving (OOCC, VII) - I would like to invite you to the attitude of Gratitude.

Gratitude is one of the most characteristic features of Pallottine spirituality. Therefore, let us celebrate our Founder's day with gratitude. Drawing from the example of Pallotti's holiness and following his instructions, let us thank God for the gift of life and call of each of us. It is in him and through him that we find our deepest identity. We are part of his life and his story.

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)
