When your Pauline mentor and you have come to a discernment that you are ready to commit yourself to the Pauline Family as a Cooperator, you will make your formal Promise. This usually takes place during a Eucharistic liturgy, among other lay and professed Paulines, in an atmosphere of joy and celebration.
PROMISE OF THE PAULINE COOPERATOR
Lord my God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who called me to be a Pauline Cooperator, grant that in imitation of St. Paul the apostle, I may acquire the mind of Christ. I intend to commit my mind, will, heart and strength according to my particular state of life, for the proclamation and diffusion of the Gospel in the forms and spirit of the Pauline Family; for the greater glory of God and for the sanctification of myself and of my brethren. Jesus Christ Teacher, Way, Truth, and Life. Mary Queen of Apostles, St. Paul the Apostle, help me to be faithful. Amen.
