Spirit of St. Vincent

“God loves the poor, consequently, He loves those who love the poor; for, when we truly love someone, we have an affection for his friends and for his servants… in this way, we have good reason to hope that, for love of them, God will love us. Come then… let’s devote ourselves with renewed love to serve persons who are poor, and even to seek out those who are the poorest and most abandoned; let’s acknowledge before God that they’re our lords and masters and that we’re unworthy of rendering them our little services.” (St. Vincent de Paul, Correspondence, Conferences, Documents, XI, 349, via http://svincent.org/en/).
