Father, you endowed Saint Vincent de Paul with the spirit of an apostle to give himself to the service of the poor and to the training of priests. Give us a share of the same spirit that we may love what he loved and do as he taught us. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
St. Vincent, pray for us.
