St. Vincent de Paul
More detailsSt. Vincent was born in April 1581 in Pouy, a village near Dax in Gascony, in the southwest of France. He studied theology at Toulouse and in 1600, before finishing his studies, was ordained priest. He felt that this was his mission, the work that God wanted from him: to bring the Gospel to the poor people of the countryside. He founded the Congregation of the Mission with this specific charism and always considered January 25th, 1617 as the Company's Foundation day. Vincent dies on the 27th 1660.

Thru Samaria

Lectio

When the days for Jesus to be taken up were fulfilled, he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem, and he sent messengers ahead of him. On the way they entered a Samaritan village to prepare for his reception there, but they would not welcome him because the destination of his journey was Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?” Jesus turned and rebuked them, and they journeyed to another village. (Lk 9:51-56)

Contemplatio: 

May we always strive to love and serve all of mankind.
