Meeting of the General Coordination Council of the Union - Final Message

 FINAL MESSAGE

Annual Meeting of the General Coordination Council of the Union

28 May - ˗2 June 2019

 Dear Brothers and Sisters

We wish to share with you, your families and communities, the great joy we have experienced together during the annual meeting of the General Coordination Council of UAC.

Pope Francis often speaks to us about growing in the culture of encounter, something very close also to the heart of St. Vincent Pallotti. The reports of the President of the Union, the three General Superiors, the other GCC Members and GCC Commission Representatives, demonstrated an increase in the understanding of our charism in evangelization and in the mission of forming apostles in service of the Church and of the Kingdom of God.

Happy Easter 2019

In that industrious, productive, patient and simple communion forged in the love of Jesus Christ, we pray for each other for the grace to faithfully and constantly live ever more profoundly the words of our holy founder Saint Vincent Pallotti: “Let our life always be at the foot of the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in Jesus Christ we will always find true joy. May the Grace, the Charity, the Peace, and the Mercy of Our Lord Jesus Christ be always in us and in all”. (Letter of 04.04.1849, to the Sisters of San Silvestro in Capite)

In the Risen One,

"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)
