“Dear Young Sportsmen!
Continue to give the best of yourselves in sports competitions! But I also say to you: be good citizens in family and social life, and even more, be good Christians, who are able to give a superior meaning to life, in such a way as to be able to put into practice what the Apostle Paul said about athletes to Christians of his time: “Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it … They (athletes) do it to receive a perishable wealth, but we an imperishable (1 Cor 9:24-25).” St. John Paul II

Over the weekend, our holy Founder’s young soccer squad from the St. Vincent Pallotti Social and Cultural Center participated in Brazil’s Football Festival, held at Santa Marta College.

The Grace of Taiwan

“In all situations say to yourself: God has put me in this state, he gives me these obligations, so in His fidelity He will grant me the grace to fulfill them.”
St. Vincent Pallotti

27 September 2018 • Taiwan

June, 2015:
It was the month that began hoping against hope; the month that signified the rebuilding of God’s Church and His people in our Pallottine Mission. The Bishop of the Diocese of Chiayi- Most Rev. Thomas Chung- appointed me Pastor of Our Lady of the Assumption Church, in Shilu Ban, Taiwan. 65 years ago, it had a large following thanks to a great Belgian priest. However, ever so gradually priests no longer were sent, and without a Shepard, so too did the people diminish.

Running With Our Saint

“Let courage lighten your step & quicken your pace, in the way that leads to everlasting glory”
-st. vincent pallotti

23 September 2018 • Rome, Italy  

Starting in St. Peter’s Square, and soon passing our General House, St. Vincent Pallotti hit the streets as an athlete of Rome Via Pacis; a half marathon to “unite all people of goodwill, and those who believe in the beauty of life, integration, and sharing.” Sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture, it served far greater than its intentions. It reminded us all that “Christian life is like a rather demanding sport, combining all a person’s energies to direct them towards the perfection of character, towards a goal which realizes our humanity in the ‘measure of Christ’s gift” (St. John Paul II).

“No Greater Love Than This”

“What got demands of you is love”
st. vincent pallotti
