Prayer of the Vincentian Family

 

Lord Jesus, you who willed to become poor, give us eyes and a heart directed toward the poor; help us recognize you in them -- in their thirst, their hunger, their loneliness, and their misfortune.

Enkindle within our Vincentian Family unity, simplicity, humility, and the fire of love that burned in St. Vincent de Paul.

Strengthen us, so that faithful to the practice of these virtues, we may contemplate you an dserve you in the person of the poor, and may one day be united with you and them in your Kingdom.  Amen.
