Tuesday, August 9, 2011

It was the day when we had to come to the end with our discussions. Therefore the working sessions, today coordinated by Sr. Josephine D´Souza,  were filled with many items and much information. Unexpectedely, a spontaneous evaluation arose in the afternoon, which had been planned for the last day. Each sister shared her impression. Again and again the sisters expressed, how good and precious it was to come to know more about our history, to be in the “Motherhouse” in Limburg, and meet many elderly sisters, experience the atmosphere of belonging to that place, prayer and trust in the guidance of God, share the same call to missionary life – and the joy of the jubilee celebrations. The Central Assembly revealed to us a spiritual and human experience: we come closer to each other and we need each other. There was no end of praise for the hosts: Sr. Helga Weidemann, Sr. Magdalene Klein and all the Sisters, who had taken care for us with great cordiality.

"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)
