THE PAULINE COOPERATORSThe following text, dated 11 June 1954, was published in
Mi protendo in avanti (p. 483). The text is to be found in both the original handwritten draft and the typewritten one. The latter, which contains some corrections and additions made by Fr Alberione, is the one we reproduce here.
The Cooperators are thought of as persons who understand the Pauline Family and are united in spirit and purpose with it. They embrace its two main aims, in the way possible to them, and make their contribution in the way possible to them. For its part, the Pauline Family desires to promote their Christian education, to guide them to live an exemplary life, and to make them sharers in the goods of the Congregation and in the merits of the apostolate.
