I praise you, o Lord
because I love you.
O Most High, abandon me not,
for you are my hope.
Freely did I receive your grace,
may I live by it.

My persecutors will come,
but let them not see me.
Let a cloud of darkness fall upon their eyes;
and let an air of thick darkness obscure them.
And let them have no light to see,
so that they cannot seize me...

For they have devised a counsel,
but it was not for them.
They prepared themselves maliciously,
but they were found to be impotent.

Indeed my hope is upon the Lord
and I shall not fear.
And because the Lord is my salvation
I shall not fear.
And he is as a crown upon my head,
and I shall not be disturbed.

Even if everything should be shaken,
I shall stand firm.
And though all things visible should perish,
I shall not die;
Because the Lord is with me,
and I with him.
Hallelujah!

Odes of Solomon (Hebrew Christian text from the beginning of the 2nd century)

* 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)

"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)

"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)
