Liturgical Season: Ordinary Time
Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove
“One must be firm and unchanging with regard to the end but gentle and humble as to the means”. Saint Vincent de Paul
Saint Vincent de Paul is known as the ‘Apostle of Charity’ because of his life spent serving the poor. On our desire to achieve our goals, we may lose sight of humility and gentleness towards people because we are so results driven. How you treat people along the way will be remembered long after the project is complete.
Prayer: Jesus, let me be focused on the goal while never neglecting to love those near me. Amen.
