May they all be one

holding hands1

“Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us. […] But now I am coming to you and I say these things in the world to share my joy with them to the full. I passed your word on to them, and the world hated them, because they belong to the world no more than I belong to the world. I am not asking you to remove them from the world, but to protect them from the Evil One. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world, and for their sake I consecrate myself so that they too may be consecrated in truth. I pray not only for these but also for those who through their teaching will come to believe in me. May they all be one, just as, Father, you are in me and I am in you, so that the world may believe it was you who sent me.” (Jn 17: 11-21)



Writings of St. Vincent Pallotti – recommendations of our Founder:

“Considering that the divine commandment obliges all people […] to strive for unity in achieving the good, especially as what regards the greater glory of God and one’s own and others’ salvation and the sanctification of each person […], according to one’s vocation, we have to work in Community – according to our capacities – for the salvation of others.” (cf. OOCC V, p. 395-396)
