Here is another in our series of “Praying Our Heritage.” The series illustrates quotes from key figures in the Vincentian Heritage.
Let the image and the quote sink in, and take root. These images might surprise you into prayer at various points in your day.
“The knowledge of social well-being and reform is to be learned not from books nor from the public platform, but in climbing the stairs to the poor man’s garret, sitting by his bedside, feeling the same cold that pierces him.” Frederic Ozanam
When did you hear the challenge to “Go to the Poor?
How did you discover that you had a Vincentian Heart?
Who have been your teachers and mentors?
Who are you inviting and mentoring?
What does justice and charity in systemic change call you to do?
These questions are from a wonderful “reading” by Sr. Kieran Kneaves, DC of the art by Gary Shumer.
For the more visually oriented among us, you don’t have to wait for the weekly image on Tuesday. You can browse for yourself. You can even search for images related to key words. Visit and search VinFormation’s database of prayer images.
We hope you will enjoy these time-release prayer capsules!
We would also welcome you sharing with all of us images that inspired you to prayer.
