The service of those who are most deprived draws its strength from the contemplation of Jesus Christ, who often went aside to pray. In this Prayer Corner, at the beginning of each month, a presentation will be offered to help you nourish and deepen your inner life and discover the meaning of Vincentian spirituality.
If you would like your prayer intentions to be remembered in our Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Paris, please fill in the form on this page: YOUR INTENTIONS
CALL TO HOLINESS
This month we will reflect on the Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis on the Call to Holiness in today’s world.
“REJOICE AND BE GLAD” (Mt 5:12), Jesus tells those persecuted or humiliated for his sake. The Lord asks everything of us, and in return, he offers us true life, the happiness for which we were created. He wants us to be saints and not to settle for a bland and mediocre existence. The call to holiness is present in various ways from the very first pages of the Bible. We see it expressed in the Lord’s words to Abraham: “Walk before me, and be blameless” (Gen 17:1)
