O Gracious God, Saint Louise de Marillac devoted her life to helping Saint Vincent de Paul serve the needs of the poor. She often taught: “Be diligent in serving the poor. Love the poor, honor them, as you would honor Christ Himself.” I lift up to You the programs in my church and community that help the needy, and the people who do the work. Multiply the donations. Teach me how to think generously. Give me a heart that desires to care for the poor as if I were serving Jesus directly, and help me to see Jesus in each person that begs on the street corner or church door. Saint Louise de Marillac, pray for us. Amen.

Physical separation does not prevent spiritual presence among persons whom Our Lord has united by bonds of His holy love. The stronger this love grows within us, the closer it binds us together. >>
