Today’s letter is “V”, and thus we have as our saint of the day Vincent de Paul:
St. Vincent de Paul (24 April 1581 – 27 September 1660) was a French Roman Catholic priest who dedicated himself to serving the poor. He is venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion. He was canonized in 1737. He was renowned for his compassion, humility and generosity and is known as the “Great Apostle of Charity”.
He lived a truly fascinating life, and I would encourage my readers to follow this link to his wiki, which tells so much more about him.
