St. Vincent de Paul

Servant to the Poor

Today we celebrate St. Vincent de Paul whose remains are in Paris France. Many have heard of the saint but few consider themselves his followers. Blessed feast day to all those enrolled in St. Vincent de Paul societies and the professed members of the Congregation of the Mission. Today more than ever we need those who imitate the great saint in living out the works of mercy: clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsy etc. In the course of history, no institution has done as much for the poor as the Catholic Church, which is filled with saints like St. Vincent. May God raise up many more!
