Saint Vincent de Paul

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 2 Cor 8 

In Christ Jesus our Lord God most high has become most low, most lowly, wounded, vulnerable, ever disguised in the distressing face of the poor and always at the door, though we are so liable to miss him. 

A drowsy complacency is always a temptation. How will I notice the poor one very near that I may find repugnant? Who is the ignored or forgotten outcast in my world?

Like Saint Vincent de Paul  whom we remember today, we want to be more and more attentive to the poor in our midst.
