From the Statutes of the Pauline Cooperators: Who can be a member of the Association of Pauline Cooperators? Persons who understand the value of the Pauline mission and want to collaborate in its fulfillment, thus finding a precious opportunity to use their skills to fulfill their Christian vocation and enable the talents they received from the Lord to bear fruit. In welcoming his/her special call, the Cooperator adheres to the Pauline ideal and commits him/herself to incarnating it in daily life according to the directives of the Church, which invites the laity to “share more intensely in the spirituality and mission of various religious Institutes” (Vita Consecrata, 54).
“To pray and work for vocations: this is the principal form of cooperation. There is the apostolate of the press…. There is the apostolate of the Sacred Liturgy…. There is the pastoral apostolate of the priests and Pastorelle Sisters…” (From a manuscript of Fr. Alberione, 18 Dec. 1965).
