'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' Mt 16:16

We believe and confess that Jesus of Nazareth, born a Jew of a daughter of Israel at Bethlehem at the time of King Herod the Great and the emperor Caesar Augustus, a carpenter by trade, who died crucified in Jerusalem under the procurator Pontius Pilate during the reign of the emperor Tiberius,

Is the eternal Son of God made man.

He 'came from God', (Jn13:3) descended from heaven', (Jn 3:13, 6:33), and 'came in the flesh'.  (1 Jn 4:2). For 'the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. . . and from his fullness have we all received, grace upon grace.' (Jn 1:14,16). Moved by the grace of the Holy Spirit and drawn by the Father, we believe in Jesus and confess:

'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' Mt 16:16

(Catechism of the Catholic Church,  423-424)

Dear Sisters,

Christmas is a glance into the future.  Where God is born, hope is born. I wish that the celebration of the birth of the Son of God would give us the joy of faith and the happiness of fulfilled hope. May the tenderness of the Infant Jesus, who was born among us, will draw us closer to Himself and will give us His love. 

 

In adoration before the Newborn King,

 

Sr. Izabela Świerad, SAC

Superior General and the Councilors

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

"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)
