Spirituality of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Prayer & Reflection
An Invitation to Pray the Scriptures
(Adapted from a prayer leaflet at St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal)
My voice cries out to you, O Lord! My voice cries out, I implore you, O Lord! Before Him I pour out my complaint, I declare my troubles before You. (Ps.142: 2-3)
You are invited to take a journey of quiet meditation. Leave your baggage behind and reach out to God. Renew your strength by taking some quiet time to enter into His silence. Renewed you can then return to your work as a Vincentian. This journey may appear as a struggle, a need to conquer silence, a purification of heart. May St. Vincent de Paul and Blessed Frederic Ozanam accompany you so that this journey may bear abundant fruit.
