Journey Through Lent With Saints Vincent and Louise (February 24)

Today’s quote:

…the graces you need to procure their salvation and your own! Since, then, all those graces have been prepared for you, and our good God, who grants them, desires nothing so much as to lavish them on those who truly want to make use of them, what is there to prevent you from being filled with them, destroying by their power all that remains of the old man in you and the darkness and ignorance of sin in those people?

I would like to hope that, for your part, you will spare neither labor, nor health, nor life itself to do so; that is why you have given yourself to God and risked the dangers of a long journey. All that remains now is for you to make a firm resolution to put your hand seriously to the work.

Vincent de Paul (Volume: 5 | Page#: 462) To a Priest of the Mission

Am I ready to “walk the talk”?
