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
FAMILY – COMMUNITY OF LOVE
The family is the patrimony of humanity because it is through the family, in accordance with God’s plan, that man’s presence on earth must continue. In Christian families, based on the sacrament of marriage, faith gives us a marvelous glimpse of the face of Christ, the splendor of truth which fills with light and joy homes whose life is inspired by the Gospel.
