"Do we live our lives as a seeker of God or realize that God is seeking us? God is indeed seeking us. In fact, we have been found in our Baptism. We enter into the mission of the Son who was sent by the Eternal Father into the world to save us. We are co-responsible for this mission and are in “holy cooperation” with the Most Blessed Trinity. Therefore, we are sent by Christ as his apostles or missionary disciples into the Church and the world to revive faith and rekindle charity. We accompany other seekers in becoming found in Christ and through his Church."
- Fr. Frank Donio SAC (Washington DC, USA)
Saint Vincent Pallotti. Born in Rome on April 21, 1795, Vincent Pallotti was a well-known priest in the city because of his great apostolic action and exemplary holiness. Truly a radical for his time, St. Vincent was known for approaching the "faithful of every class, rank, and condition" to minister to "those who are most spiritually needy." During his lifetime, he founded the Union of Catholic Apostolate, an association to revive faith and rekindle charity among Catholics and propagate faith to all. He believed that all are called to be apostles of Jesus Christ. [Catholic Apostolate Center]
