Vincentian Prayer Images: One of the Great Saints of History XXVI

by | Mar 29, 2022 | Formation, Reflections | 1 comment

Let the image and the text sink in, and take root. These images might surprise you into prayer at various points in your day.

One of the reasons for Saint Vincent de Paul to be considered a key figure in the history of the holiness of the Church is his style of living his vocation.

Source: The religious experience of Saint Vincent de Paul by José María Román, C.M. • Third Asian Vincentian Institute (Mother House, Paris, September-December 2006).

This week’s example is:

Saint Vincent undertook all kinds of works: Participation in the Council of Conscience, a group entrusted with religious cases and particularly with the appointment of bishops–– something that Vincent regarded as the council’s most important task— “for the good which he could do for the poor.”


This is another image in our series of “Praying Our Heritage.”

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 enjoy these time-release prayer capsules!

We would also welcome you sharing with all of us images that inspired you to prayer.

    Thank You for bringing St. Vincent into the mix of great saints of the church. He definitely among the greatest. I consider him in the same level as St. Paul. Same in Holiness and spirituality. He didn’t sit around waiting for a clear voice from Heaven with directions for his life. He prayed and did it and prayed all along to be guided by the Triune God.
