“We have gifts that differ according to the favor bestowed on each of us.”

(Romans 12: 6)

 

We are Pallottines:

With deep roots projecting

From the heart of Pallotti’s Vision,

We remain ever conscious

Of yesterday’s journey in raw courage:

Generous women daring to cross oceans

And divers continents, eagerly embracing

New cultures and accepting contradictory challenges.

We face different obstacles from those of our pioneers,

But we do so in the same spirit that graced the first sisters

In the early pursuit of the original dream of MISSION.

We are imbued with the Pallottine Passion for the Mission of Christ:

Although the road we travel is quite different today,

With challenges unique to our time in history,

Our hearts remain united with those champions of the past,

And we remain united to the quest of Pallotti’s contemplation.

Through the continued guidance of the Holy Spirit,

And the inspiration of Mary, Queen of Apostles,

The vision continues to mushroom in meaning.

We zealously march into the future possessing the Loving Spirit

Instilled by our founder, and nurtured by our pioneer sisters.

TOGETHER, we are called to passionately pave the way today

Toward the fulfillment of the Vision of the MISSION of CHRIST.

"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)

"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)
