General Council visits Pallottines in Rome
(Text from: sac.info) Every Wednesday, the Pallottine Family in Rome gathers around the altar of St. Vincent Pallotti to pray together. 2nd December 2015 was a special day because, together with the priests, brothers, sisters and lay members of the UAC, were present also the Superior General of the Schoenstatt Fathers, Fr. Juan Pablo Catoggio and all the other members of his General Administration, elected on 22 August 2015.
The Holy Mass was presided over by Fr. Martin Manus, General Consultor. In his welcome message the Rector General, Fr. Jacob Nampudakam, recalled how St. Vincent was a prophet of communion! Hence it is the responsibility of all continue to be instruments of fraternal communion based on the love of Christ. The Eucharistic celebration was thus a moment to recognize the many gifts of the common spiritual heritage left by St. Vincent Pallotti and to express the availability of all to strengthen the bonds of friendship and commitment to the mission of the Church.
At the end of the Mass, Fr. Juan Pablo Catoggio thanked for the invitation and the moments of prayer together. He added that St. Vincent Pallotti was indeed also the prophet of the new evangelization. We pray through the intercession of Mary, Queen of Apostles and of St. Vincent, that the mission that was entrusted to the Schoenstatt Fathers and the Society of the Catholic Apostolate may bear abundant fruits for our communities and for the whole Church.
