Prayer To St Vincent de Paul I
Noble Saint Vincent de Paul,
beloved servant of the poor,
may we follow your example and do good works
among those whom society has abandoned,
enslaved, or forgotten.
Inspire us to feed the hungry,
to love a child,
to provide comfort and medicine to the sick,
to clothe those whose garments are threadbare,
and to offer hope and our Lord’s words
to all who need respite.
Pray for us to our beloved God
that we may commit ourselves selflessly
to doing the same charitable acts
that you did all your life,
and intercede with him
that we may have the favour of his guidance
and strength and love upon this important and meaningful work. Amen.
Prayer To St Vincent de Paul II
St. Vincent, patron of all charitable associations
and father of those who are in misery,
come to our assistance.
Obtain from Our Lord help for the poor,
relief for the infirm,
consolation for the afflicted,
protection for the abandoned,
a spirit of generosity for the rich,
grace of conversion for sinners,
zeal for priests,
peace for the Church,
tranquillity and order for all nations,
and salvation for them all.
May we be united in the life to come, by your intercession,
and experience joy, gladness, and everlasting happiness. Amen.
… St Vincent de Paul, Pray for Us …
