Susanne Keszler, S.A.C.
“Zsuzsanna Klara”
March 20, 1928 – February 7, 2017
“God gave me a keen sense of sin from early youth, like He gave to Vincent Pallotti, and called me to make up for the sins of the world by responding to His love by following Him in religious life. He promised only one thing, that He will never leave me. He never did, nor will He. This year as we celebrated the feast of Vincent Pallotti, he smiled at me and assured me that God is with me.”

With sadness and gratitude, Sr. Suanne Keszler was called home to God at 12:00 a.m., February 7, 2017 at the age of 88. She was born in Budapest, Hungary on March 20, 1928, the oldest of three children of Dezso and Matild “Ebrey” Keszler. She was close to both her siblings, Paul who lives in Huntington, WV and her now deceased sister, Maria Keszler Dittman of Newport News, Virginia. She is survived by her brother-in-law, Richard, and two nieces, Veronica and Susanne Dittman. -- From Sr. Gail

Pope Francis meets with Pallottine Fathers and Brothers
2016-10-10 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Monday greeted members of the General Assembly of the Pallottine Fathers and Brothers.

Pope Francis spoke of the charism of St. Vincent Pallotti, who founded the order in Rome in 1835, saying he was “blessed to recognize that Jesus is the Apostle of the Father - rich in mercy and full of mercy - [Christ] is the one who fulfills his mission by revealing to everyone the tender love and the infinite mercy of the Father.”

“Contemplating the life of Jesus and looking at our life as pilgrims in this world with its many challenges, we feel the necessity of a profound conversion and the urgency of reviving faith in Him,” – Pope Francis said – “This is the only way we can serve our neighbor in charity! Every day we are called to renew our trust in Christ and from his life draw inspiration to fulfill our mission because ‘Jesus is the first and greatest evangelizer. In every activity of evangelization, the primacy always belongs to God, who has called us to cooperate with him and who leads us on by the power of his Spirit.’” [Evangelii gaudium, 12).

The Holy Father urged the Pallottine Fathers and Brothers to “continue with joy and hope on your path, engaging yourselves with all your heart and all your strength, so the charism of your Founder bears abundant fruit also in our time.”

“St. Vincent Pallotti liked to repeat that the call of the apostolate is not reserved to some, but is addressed to everyone, ‘regardless of their status, their condition, their profession, their fortune, all are able to take part,’” Pope Francis said.

Pope Francis then spoke of the Union of Catholic Apostolate (UAC), which fosters apostolic works in dioceses around the world. The UAC was also founded by St. Vincent Pallotti, and is under the pastoral care of the Pallottines.

The Pope said the apostolate “offers many spaces and opens new horizons to participate in the mission of the Church,” adding he was familiar with the UAC during his time in Argentina, and has fond memories of them.

Pope Francis called on them to work with “renewed vigour to reawaken faith and rekindle charity, especially among the most vulnerable segments of the population, the materially and spiritually poor.”
