To listen to God, to try to follow him, to serve him in those in need, we must center ourselves often in moments of prayer and reflection. Only in union with God can we find the strength, support, and courage we need to live life fully and meaningfully.
St. Vincent de Paul, the founder of the Daughters of Charity, has inspired a method of decision-making and discernment which puts us in God’s hands before we begin any significant action. To experience this way of discernment, click on Vincentian Discernment.
Our founders, St Louise de Marillac, St. Vincent de Paul, and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, have special gifts that help lead us to find Jesus Christ in the poor and suffering, and to come to their assistance with full and grateful hearts. For prayers to help us follow in their footsteps or a prayer to ask for God’s guidance in discerning your own vocation, click on Prayerful Meditations.
Sometimes poetry can lead us more deeply into the awareness of God’s presence in the events of our daily lives, or the beauty of nature around us. For an example of such poetry, click on Artistic Reflections.
Our Prayer Room will be updated regularly with ideas for prayer and union with God. Be sure to check in with us often. May God bless you today and every day, and bring us closer together as we seek to follow him in love and generosity.
