Our Morning Offering – 27 September – The Memorial of St Vincent de Paul C.M. (1581-1660)
Prayer of Thanksgiving
By St Vincent de Paul (1581-1660)
who gave us the law
to love our neighbour as ourselves,
who practised it
in such perfect fashion towards men,
let You Yourself be, O Lord,
Your eternal thanks!
O Saviour, how happy I am
to be in the state of loving my neighbour!
Grant me the grace
to acknowledge my good fortune,
to love this blessed state
and to ensure that this virtue,
may be revealed now,
tomorrow and always.
