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."
 St Vincent de Paul
Priest, Co-Founder of Daughters of Charity
Founder - Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians)

 "Humility and charity are the two master-chords: one, the lowest;
the other, the highest; all the others are dependent on them.
Therefore it is necessary, above all, to maintain ourselves in these
two virtues; for observe well that the preservation of the whole
edifice depends on the foundation and the roof. "~ St Vincent de Paul
   St Vincent de Paul, ora pro nobis!
