Beginning 2011 with St. Vincent de Paul

As we begin a new year, let's reflect on a quote from St. Vincent de Paul in regards to what this organization is all about today:

“It is our duty to prefer the service of the poor to everything else and to offer such service as quickly as possible. If a needy person requires medicine or other help during prayer time, do whatever has to be done with peace of mind. Offer the deed to God as your prayer…. Charity is certainly greater than any rule. Moreover, all rules must lead to charity.”
