Bl. Maria Assunta Pallotta

Blessed Maria Assunta


BL. Maria Assunta Pallotta lived her ‘VOW ‘in the ‘NOW’

With a particular ‘HOW’ of doing:

All for Jesus and one thing at a time.

Wisdom of the simple indeed and

A mark of a true child of God.

To be followed much in our day of haste, multitasking and quick finishing

 Goals to be achieved somehow, by means even surprising.

Assunta teaches us gently: Haste is waste!

Chance once missed is forever lost.

No use regretting over the past; nor worrying for the future.

Make the best of NOW.

Assunta invites us to live

The now in her way: One thing at a time and with one purpose

Complete and well done, a sure trail of success the thirst of everyone.

Blessed Assunta Pallotta, pray for us

Help us to keep smiling

Doing the right thing

Always as  you did.
