SAINT OF THE DAY

Today, September 27th, is the Feast Day of St. Vincent De Paul. He was a seventeenth century French priest renowned for his service to the sick and poor. He was also well known for his healthy dose of humility, and compassion.

St. Vincent De Paul, pray for us!

 

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Virtue is not found in extremes, but in prudence, which I recommend as strongly as I can.”

- St. Vincent De Paul

 

Are you doing the small things?

...being patient with your spouse?

...befriending the difficult coworker?

...giving that homeless guy a few dollars?

...caring for your aging parents?

We can get wrapped up in the loftier things of our faith, but as St. Paul tells us in Corinthians 13 and as St. Vincent De Paul’s example shows if we don’t have love... it’s all for nothing.
