Today’s well-known French priest straddles the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. His care for the poor was exemplary. He was also the spiritual director of St Jane de Chantal after the death of St Francis de Sales, for some twenty years.

He said: ‘If we divested ourselves, once and for all, of all self-will, we would then be in a position of being sure of doing the Will of God. If we are faithful to God, we will lack nothing’.

Let us pray today for the Vincentian Order, which he founded, for its witness today amongst the poor. May he in turn pray for us, and may God bless you.
