    Novena Prayer in Honor of
    St. Vicent de Paul


    O glorious Saint Vincent, heavenly patron of all charitable associations and father of all who are in misery, whilst thou wast on earth thou didst never cast out any who came to thee; ah, consider by what evils we are oppressed and come to our assistance! Obtain from thy Lord help for the poor, relief for the infirm, consolation for the afflicted, protection for the abandoned, a spirit of generosity for the rich, the grace of conversion for sinners, zeal for priests, peace for the Church, tranquillity and order for all nations, and salvation for them all. Yea, let all men prove the effects of thy merciful intercession, so that, being helped by thee in the miseries of this life, we may be united to thee in the life to come, where there shall be no more grief, nor weeping, nor sorrow, but joy and gladness and everlasting happiness. Amen

    (Indulgence of 300 days; plenary indulgence once a month, on the usual conditions, for the daly devout recitation of this prayer. --Pius IX., Nov. 23, 1876)

    Hymn to St. Vincent De Paul



    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.

    There is no grief or care of men
     Thou dost not own for thine;
     No broken heart thou dost not fill
     With mercy's oil and wine.

    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.

    Thy miracles are works of love,
     Thy greatest is to make
     Room in a day, for toils that weeks
     In other men would take.

    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.

    All cries of suffering through the earth
     Upon thy mercy call,
     As though thou wert, like God Himself
     A father unto all.

    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.

    Dear Saint, not in the wilderness
     Thy fragrant virtues bloom.
     But in the city's crowded haunts.
     The alley's cheerless gloom.

    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.

    The father of the childless old,
     The lonesome widow's stay,
     The gladness of the orphan groups
     Out in the streets at play.

    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.

    Yet not unto the towns confined
     The gifts thy mercy gave.
     The Gospel to the villager,
     His freedom to the slave.

    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.

    For charity anointed thee
     O'er want, and woe, and pain;
     And she hath crowned thee emperor
     Of all her wide domain.

    O Blessed Father! sent by God,
     His mercy to dispense,
     Thy hand is out o'er all the earth,
     Like God's own providence.



     ________________________________


    From the Pen of Saint Vincent de Paul


    Every time that some unexpected event befalls us, be it affliction, or be it spiritual or corporal consolation, we should endeavor to receive it with equanimity of spirit, since all comes from the hand of God.



    He who submits himself to God in all things is certain that whatever men say or do against him will always turn to his advantage.



    After knowing the will of God in regard to a work which we undertake, we should continue courageously, however difficult it may be. We should follow it to the end with as much constancy as the obstacles we encounter are great.



    We should never abandon, on account of the difficulties we encounter, an enterprise undertaken with due reflection.



    We should be cordial and affable with the poor, and with persons in humble circumstances. We should not treat them in a supercilious manner. Haughtiness makes them revolt. On the contrary, when we are affable with them, they become more docile and derive more benefit from the advice they receive.



    That which we suffer in the accomplishment of a good work, merits for us the necessary graces to insure its success.



    We ought to have a special devotion to those saints who excelled in humility, particularly to the Blessed Virgin Mary, who declares that the Lord regarded her on account of her humility.
