Our Liturgy this morning was celebrated by Rev. Nelson Rodrigues:   “Only the person who feels happiness in seeking the good of others and desiring their happiness can be a missionary.  If I can help at least one person have a better life, this justifies the offering of my life.”

Sr. Izabela oriented us to this day’s agenda:  Mission Procurator, Financial Support, Projects, and Call for the new mission.    We are trying to bring freshness to our Congregation and see what newness we can bring to these elements.  “We do not live for ourselves . . . We are to bear the witness to God’s grace and give glory.”

Members had a very fruitful discussion based on the following questions:

Questions for Small Group Discussions

  1. What are the new ways for your Province/Region/Delegature, and for our Congregation at large?  Name three most important ‘ways’?
  2. What are the main challenges we face today?
  3. What kind of structure will help us to embrace the entire Congregation?

In conclusion of today’s meeting, we ask those who are walking with us to examine your zeal for the missions, for vocations to consecrated religious life, and your creative ideas for the new evangelization.

"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)

"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)
