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, St Vincent said:
"I am going to Jesus from Jesus."

"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
