During my visit to Harriman-Monroe, Fairview, Baltimore, Green Hill, Laurel, and Milwaukee I saw that the UAC is an authentic presence of the Church.
In all of those places, I have experienced that the life of the entire Pallottine Family, is a fabric of relationships through which we learn that communion must be made flow through relationships, and that the charism of St. Vincent Pallotti still now reveals the newness of its content in this life of relationships. Everywhere I encountered people (among the priests, brothers, sisters, lay people, young people, older people, parishioners, the sick) who live deeply their conviction and their commitment to follow Jesus Christ and attract yet others to Him, calling all and uniting the efforts of all in service of the Church. This is what Saint Vincent intended by the expression “co-founders” of his work.
I wish to express my deepest gratitude to each and everyone of the UAC in the States. I felt unity and communion are not utopian ideas and the gift of the Holy Spirit to Pallotti is still working here and now in his sons and daughters for the good of the Church and of humanity.
