Feast of St. Vincent de PaulSeptember 27th, 2014
This passage reminds us of the shortness of life. Even the oldest person you know will tell you how quickly life passes. As you look back, you ask yourself where the years have gone. They are gone before we realise how quickly they have passed by.
Today is the feast of St. Vincent de Paul, 1580 – 1660. He committed himself to the care of the disadvantaged and the oppressed. He founded the Congregation of the Mission (the Vincentians) and the Daughters of Charity. He is the patron of all charitable works.
