"The joy of God is our strength, Alleluia!"

cf. Neh 8,10

Sorrowfully and with much gratitude we, the Sisters of the General Administration of the Missionary Pallottine Sisters and all Provinces give back into God’s loving hands our beloved and revered,

Sister  Maria Knaus,  SAC.

Sr. Maria guided our Congregation as a Superior General, as Provincial, and as General Mission Procurator with love, wisdom, and courage. Looking towards the future of the Community she acted with confidence in the Lord.  God was the source of her strength and benevolence in the days of her service and responsibility. God was her refuge in the dark valley of sickness.

In great peace this Saturday morning at 5:30 on  the 18th of February she went home to the Father, the Source of her joy.

The burial will be on Thursday, 23 February 2012 at 10.30 a.m. in the cemetery of the Pallottine Sisters in Kloster Marienborn, Limburg. In the following Eucharistic Celebration we thank God for the life and ministry of Sr. Maria.

* 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)
