You must reflect on infinite love; pray, preach inflamed by love... You must radiate love everywhere and you must lead the hearts to the fullness of love in infinite love.
— St. Vincent Pallotti

The path to sanctity transcends evermore for four of our confreres, who made their perpetual consecration into the Society on the Blessed Mother’s birthday! Brothers Gonzaga, Faustin, George, and Michael cast down their nets at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Gallapo, Tanzania.

Gallapo is also the city where our Postulancy is based. Part of the Diocese of Mbulu, our Fathers also serve in the parishes of Bashenet, Boay, Magugu and Nangwa. Regarding a broader visualization of Pallotti’s footsteps in Tanzania, we are also in the Archdiocese of Arusha- the location of our Pallottine Formation House of Philosophy-, as well as Diocese of Singida, where we have particular care of a children’s rehabilitation center in Siuyu. All are pastorally guided by Ireland’s Mother of Divine Love Province.

Our prayers accompany these young brothers, so that they may always be guided by the heavenly advice of our Founder: “the real source of joy lies in the love of God.”
