In the Gospel, Jesus supersedes both the apostles’ and the crowds’ expectations: with little he feeds many…Jesus is the sign of God’s lavish presence and love. Your donation to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is indeed a sign of God’s extravagant love to the lonely and the poor.
This month, through your gifts, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was able to assist Families by providing them food, utilities, rent and other bills that need to be paid. God Bless You.

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples to “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” Vincent de Paul, a great man of action was also a contemplative. His contemplation of God’s love overflowed into practical love for the poor.
Please say a special prayer for the poor and forgotten, as you place your gift in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul poor box.

In the Gospel today we see how Jesus sent his Apostles out two by two. From the beginning of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, members visit in pairs “two by two”, those who are poor and needy in their homes. It is there, in the family setting, that Vincentians listen, offer humble advice, and render assistance.
Have you considered answering the call to help serve the poor by joining the Society of St. Vincent de Paul?

This week put a gift in the St. Vincent de Paul poor box, knowing that through your kindness someone who is suffering will be touched by God in a miraculous way.
