Patron: Saint Vincent de Paul
"Let us seek out the poorest and most abandoned among us, and recognize before God that they are our lords and masters, and that we are unworthy of rendering our little services for them."
PATRONESS: THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
Blessed Frederic Ozanam had a great devotion to Mary and declared Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception the patroness of the Society.
"Behold Your Mother"
Official Prayer of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul
You who willed to become poor,
give us eyes and a heart directed toward the poor;
help us to recognize you in them-
in their thirst, their hunger, their loneliness, and their misfortune.
En kindle within our Vincentian Family
unity, simplicity, humility,
and the fire of love
that burned in St. Vincent de Paul.
Strengthen us, so that, faithful to the practice of these virtues,
we may contemplate you and serve you in the person of the poor,
and may one day be united with you and them in your Kingdom.
