Going to Jesus from Jesus...

St Vincent de Paul was praying before the Eucharist one time and,
after a man told him about a poor person on the street needing help,
Vincent said:

"I am going to Jesus from Jesus."

Remembering ....St Vincent de Paul
1580-1660 ~ France
Priest, Co-Founder of Daughters of Charity

"We should take as a maxim never to be surprised at current difficulties, 
no more than at a passing breeze, because with a little patience 
we shall see them disappear. Time changes everything."
-  St. Vincent de Paul

St Vincent de Paul, pray for us!
