St. Vincent de Paul

St. Vincent de Paul was an extraordinary man. I just finished up a short biography of the saint and I was humbled and amazed at the things he accomplished for God's glory and man's benefit. Also watched a foreign film Monsieur Vincent (which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1948). It's a wonderful film -- not up to today's standards of cinematography but straightforward and filled with the good deeds of Vincent de Paul. If anyone wants to borrow either the film or biography, let me know. You won't be able to attend our lovely parish church without thinking of St. Vincent de Paul's love for children, the poor, and the vocation of the priesthood.
