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.
Walking through each day with St. Vincent
St. Vincent told the Daughters of Charity: “Before dinner, make the examination of conscience… on the resolutions you took at meditation [that morning]. As far as possible, these resolutions should be on the practice of some particular virtue and, as a rule, should aim at combating the imperfection to which you’re most inclined; for you see, Sisters, even the most just person falls seven times a day; some Sisters are subject to vanity, others to unbecoming behavior. That’s what you have to work at: overcoming your bad habits.”
Just as we work at earning a living, getting an education, hobbies, etc., St. Vincent reminds us that there is another kind of work.
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.
