Happy Feast day of St. Vincent de Paul

Wisdom from a wonderful saint:



"Let us be submissive to Providence, He will see to our affairs in His own time and in His own way"

"If after so much effort and prayer, the matter is not successful, it will be a clear sign that God does not will it."

"God often delays the conclusion of a holy endeavor so that those involved in it might merit its grace by the length of the work, their patience, and their prayers. This is why I beg you not to grow weary in yours. Although He may delay, He will reveal that it is pleasing to Him, if it is done, nevertheless, in a spirit of resignation regarding the outcome."

"I beg Our Lord, Monsieur, that we may be able to die to ourselves in order to rise with Him, that he may be the joy of your heart, the end and soul of your actions, and your glory in heaven. This will come to pass if, from now on, we humble ourselves as He humbled Himself, if we renounce our own satisfaction to follow Him by carrying our little crosses, and if we give our lives willingly, as He gave His, for our neighbor whom He loves so much and whom He wants us to love as ourselves."

"Be acted upon rather than active. In this way, God will do through you alone what all men put together could not do without Him. "
