Our soul waits for the Lord
FROM THE SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL In the Gospel Jesus is transfigured and a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased: Listen to him.” Do we listen to Jesus when he asks us to take care of our brothers and sisters who are suffering? Your gift in the St. Vincent DePaul Poor Box will help the poor to celebrate the grace of God’s love this Easter.
