Prayer for the
400th Anniversary Year
Lord, Merciful Father
that instilled in Saint Vincent de Paul
a great concern
for the evangelization of the poor,
infuse your Spirit
in the hearts of His followers.
That as we hear the cry
of your abandoned children,
we may run to their assistance,
“like someone who runs to put out a fire.”
Revive within us the flame of the Charism,
That flame which has animated
our missionary life for 40o hundred years.
We ask this in the name of your Son,
Jesus Christ, our Lord,
“the Evangelizer of the Poor.”
Across the world, organizations and religious communities that trace their roots to St. Vincent De Paul are celebrating the 400th anniversary of the charism identified with this 17th century saint. What’s this all about? Who was Vincent de Paul? What’s a charism?
