I hope from your goodness and infinite generosity that you'll forgive me...as you did for the poor debtor in the gospel.-Day 31St. Vincent de Paul, the Apostle of Charity, dedicated himself at a young age to the care of the poor and most abandoned. He learned that to serve selflessly we must be consumed by love, holding nothing back. His words and thoughts lead us to a better appreciation of our Christian lives and a greater love for all, especially the poor.In Lent and Easter Wisdom from St. Vincent de Paul, author John E. Rybolt, CM matches passages from St. Vincent's writings with prayers and actions. Let St. Vincent's wisdom inspire you to free yourself of the burdens and temptations of the world so that you, too, may be ready to serve.
