Saint Vincent de Paul

September 27

Saint Vincent de PaulGenerous God, Saint Vincent de Paul developed a special concern for the poor after giving the Sacraments to a dying peasant.  He cared for slaves, prostitutes, war victims, and the destitute.  I ask him to pray for all the Saint Vincent de Paul Societies, the churches that sponsor them, all other charitable ministries, and the people they help.  O Lord, multiply the provisions they distribute to the needy, give new strength to the workers, and bring in more volunteers who serve the poor with genuine love.  Protect these ministries and teach us all by their example that helping the needy brings great joy.  Saint Vincent, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Vincent de Paul

The Church teaches us that mercy belongs to God. Let us implore Him to bestow on us the spirit of mercy and compassion, so that we are filled with it and may never lose it. Only consider how much we ourselves are in need of mercy. >>

Extend your mercy towards others, so that there can be no one in need whom you meet without helping. For what hope is there for us if God should withdraw His Mercy from us? >>

The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For, as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it. >>

A sure way for a Christian to grow rapidly in holiness is a conscientious effort to carry out God’s will in all circumstances and at all times. >>
