Reflection on the Painting
Recently, we celebrated the feast day of Saint Vincent de Paul (1581-1660), founder of the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians) and co-founder of the Sisters of Charity. Born in Gascony, France, he devoted himself completely at the service of the poor with great compassion, generosity and humility, until he was disabled by old age.
Pope Leo XIII declared him patron saint of all works of charity. But let’s in particular celebrate the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, a charitable organization dedicated to the service of the poor, established in 1833 by French university students, led by the Blessed Frederic Ozanam. The SVdp Society is present in more than 150 countries on 5 continents. It has 800,000 active members and more than one million volunteer members.
The aim of the St. Vincent de Paul Society is to tackle poverty in all its forms through providing practical assistance to those in need. This help is broader than just providing financial support. SVdP members visit people who are sick, lonely, in prison, or suffering from addiction. Through this one-to-one, person-to-person contact, members spend time with those less well off, the greatest gift they can share.
How do we change the world and make it a better place? By one random act of kindness at a time! One visit to a sick person, one chat to a lonely man, one sandwich for a homeless person, etc. In a world where we can be anything, let’s be kind!
To end with a quote by St. Vincent de Paul himself: "That which we suffer in the accomplishment of a good work, merits for us the necessary graces to insure its success."
