Sr. Carol Schumer, D.C. provides a prayer service for September with the theme “Vincent de Paul: Importance of Prayer”.
Vincent ends many of his letters asking the recipient to pray for him.He uses phrases such as:
- “Remember me in your prayers” (#76 To the Pastor of Bergeres, page 118, September 2,1631);
- “Do not forget us in your prayers” (#103 To Saint Louise, page 155, ~1632);
- “I recommend myself to your prayers” (#124 To Francois DuCoudray in Rome, page 176, September 19, 1632)
- To this end, let us lift one another to God in prayer. (Correspondence Vincent de Paul, Coste, Volume 1)
One could find countless instance of where Pope Francis does the same.
