Christmas Greetings 2017

Rome, Christmas 2017

Dear Sisters 

The Nativity it is a gift of new life, which opens our hearts to light, and to hope.

The newborn Christ comes to us in history, offering us a time of grace. He comes in our family, offering us the Church as community, and then He comes as a Man, offering us as brother and sister, to those He sends us.

Letter of the Superior General for Advent 2017

The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber.

Our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.

So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

Romans 13:11-12

 

Dear Sisters,

We have just begun Advent, and together with it, a new liturgical year, which indicates a new way. This is KAIROS – divine gift, which opens before us new perspectives and invites to look beyond current horizons of our thoughts, desires and dreams. Responding to the grace of this time of Advent, we can experience a deep sense of our life, which is a journey toward an encounter with Christ.  This is beautifully expressed by the prayer of St. Vincent Pallotti: Lord, may I always find myself in the state of suffering pilgrim, who is consumed by the greatest desire of approach. During Advent the Lord is asking us: Are we really on the way? Where are we going? What is our common goal?

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

“When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled…” --a time announced by Christ and awaited by the disciples… This is a day, which after 2000 years incessantly gathers the faithful in Christ in one place around Mary.  It is a day when the Wind and Fire of the Holy Spirit creates and continues to form the Church. It is a day of a special and specific heritage, an inheritance of prayer and 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)

"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)
