Blessings to all the Vincentians! Today is the Required Memorial of the founder of the Order and the man that helped found the Sisters of Charity (Blessings to them, as well) and the man for whom the St. Vincent de Paul Society id dedicated. Our gospel today talked about how Jesus sent out the disciples to preach and heal (satisfy the physical and spiritual needs of others). It fits St. Vincent to a “T.” He started out providing for the spiritual needs of French peasants then addressed the physical needs as well. This reminds us that every person is made up of bother body and soul. Both need tending.
