Today we mark the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul.
“So, our vocation is to go, not just to one parish, not just to one diocese, but all over the world; and do what? To set people’s hearts on fire, to do what the Son of God did. He came to set the world on fire in order to inflame it with His love.”
Vincent de Paul, Conference of May 30, 1659
