Vincentian Inspiration

"When God takes from us the power to labor, we should receive the trial courageously,
letting it serve to elevate us above the things of earth and remembering
that Our Lord, having permitted us to work for our neighbor,
now wishes us to prepare for heaven."
- St. Vincent de Paul

"Cuando Dios retira de nosotros la habilidad de trabajar, debemos recibir la prueba con valentía,
permitiendo que ésta sirva para elevarnos más allá de las cosas de esta tierra y recordando
que Nuestro Señor, habiéndonos permitido que trabajemos para nuestro prójimo,
ahora desea prepararnos para el cielo.”
- San Vicente de Paul
