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.
“I shouldn’t judge poor peasants, men or women, by their surface appearance, nor by their apparent mental capacities. And this is hard to do, since very frequently they scarcely seem to have the semblance or the intelligence of reasonable beings, so gross and so offensive are they. But, turn the coin, and you will see by the light of faith that the Son of God, Whose will it was to be poor, is represented to us by just these people.” (XI Conference #19, p.32)
- Do I turn the “dented coins” I pass by, maybe even live and work with?
- Can I recognize my own dents?
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.
