Rome

▪ On the 33rd Sunday of the Ordinary Time in the liturgical year, the Church celebrated the World Day of the Poor. Pope Francis with great passion for the poor presided over the Holy Eucharist at St. Peter’s Basilica in which participated about 6,000 of homeless and poor people from Rome and surrounding areas. During his homily, Pope Francis urged all men and women of good will to ask for the grace “to hear the cry of all those tossed by the waves of life; the cry of the unborn, the starving children, young people more used to the explosion of bombs than happy shouts of the playgrounds, the elderly cast off and abandoned to themselves, the cry of all those forced to flee from their home lands for an uncertain future”. He invited bishops, priests, religious men and women to allow themselves to be evangelized by the poor whom they serve, and in this way to discover the beauty of the Gospel.

* Our Way of Life *

"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)
