Pauline Cooperators anchor their lives in the Pauline spirituality which is centered on Jesus our Divine Master, Way, Truth and Life. The Pauline Cooperator brings the totality of his/her person to be transformed in Christ so that he/she can go forth to proclaim Him with boldness, in the spirit of St Paul, to the people of today. The Eucharist and the Word of God are the fonts of Pauline Spirituality. It is from these that we receive the life of Jesus, the Divine Master, and nourish our relationship with him in order to allow him to live in us as we witness to the Gospel with our lives.
Blessed James Alberione said, “From the tabernacle, everything. Without the tabernacle, nothing.” Praying before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the privileged place of prayer for the Pauline Cooperator. For this reason, Pauline Cooperators participate actively in the sacramental life of the Church, especially in Holy Mass, and participate in Eucharistic Adoration whenever possible according to their state in life.
The Holy Scriptures are a substantive source of spiritual nourishment for the Pauline Cooperator. It is in these inspired words that God speaks to the Pauline daily in ways that are living and true. In praying with the Word of God, the Pauline Cooperator is set on fire with love and zeal to spread the Gospel to the people of today. For this reason, Pauline Cooperators are encouraged to read the Bible daily, especially through lectio divina which they embrace during their formation process.
The Pauline Cooperator lives and gives this Pauline spirituality under the gaze of Mary, Queen of the Apostles. Mary is our Mother and model for discipleship. In the ordinary day-to-day happenings of life, the Pauline Cooperator relies on Mary's intercessory help and learns from her how to live in union with Jesus and give Jesus to all those he/she meets.
Following in the footsteps of St Paul, the Pauline Cooperator seeks to bring his/her whole self - mind, will, and heart - to Jesus who is Truth, Way, and Life in order to communicate the whole Christ to the world that so desperately needs Him. This daily transformation through prayer is a life long journey that one can say like St Paul, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives within me” (Gal 2:20).
