St Vincent de Paul3.jpgO glorious Saint Vincent
de Paul, the mention of your name suggests a litany of your virtues: humility,
zeal, mercy, and self-sacrifice. It also recalls your many foundations:
Works of Charity, Congregations, and Societies.

Inspire all charitable workers,
especially those who minister to both the spiritually and the materially poor. Ask
the Lord to grant us the grace to relinquish the temptation of material things
in our daily effort to minister to the poor.  Amen.
