Institute of Jesus Priest

The Phrase Abundantes divitiae gratiae suae is taken from the Letter to the Ephesians (2:7)

{"extraordinary riches of grace"}  in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus


Even before he narrates anything about the humble origins of the institution, Fr. Alberione is mindful of who he is. He is a person who is guided

"a half-blind man, who is being led {by God}: and in moving along he is enlightened from time to time, so that he can proceed further,"  he is a "servant" under obedience and, at the same time, he is mindful of the fact that he is a spiritual guide and a "Teacher" for his own followers.  In all of this there is, on his part, no pointless withdrawal into himself nor any self-satisfaction in his own gifts.

 

Fr. Alberione said simply: "I would like it to be known and I regard it as important: that after my death there be no more talk about me, but only of

Saint Paul: he is our founder, our model, our father, the one who inspires us."

                                                   From the document "Abundantes Divitiae Gratiae Suae" known as "The Charismatic history of the Pauline Family."

Weekly Reflection


The Pauline Family mirrors the Church in its members, in its activities, in its apostolate, in its mission.

Our piety is first and foremost Eucharistic.  Everything gushes forth from the Eucharistic Master as from a life-giving source.
