St. Vincent de Paul Comments

St. Vincent was born of poor parents in the village of Pouy in Gascony, France, about 1580. He enjoyed his first schooling under the Franciscan Fathers at Acqs. Such had been his progress in four years that a gentleman chose him as subpreceptor to his children, and he was thus enabled to continue his studies without being a burden to his parents.

    One of my favorite directives by a saint is from St. Vincent de Paul:
    "Strive to live content in the midst of those things that
    cause your discontent. Free your mind from all that
    troubles you, God will take care of things. You will be
    unable to make haste in this [choice] without, so to
    speak, grieving the heart of God, because he sees that
    you do not honor him sufficiently with holy trust. Trust in
    him, I beg you, and you will have the fulfillment of what
    your heart desires" (St. Vincent de Paul, Letters).
