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

“Extend mercy towards others, so that there can be no one in need
whom you meet without helping. For what hope is there for us
if God should withdraw His mercy from us?” ~ St. Vincent de Paul
St Vincent de Paul, pray for us!
