Vincentian Prayer Images: Christ’s Broken Body Today

by | Feb 16, 2021 | Formation, Reflections

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.

“How beautiful it is to see poor people if we consider them in God and with the esteem in which Jesus Christ held them!” – St. Vincent

Do not restore (my broken image). When you see me this way, let us see if you will remember my brothers and sisters who suffer and if you will grieve.” Fr. Mavric’s Lenten letter “The Broken Christ”

My own broken Christ, whether before my eyes or in my thoughts, invites me to a real dialogue.

May this Lenten Season help us to deepen or simply start a conversation with the broken Christ, which certainly will not leave us indifferent.

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.
