MEMORIAL OF VINCENT DE PAUL, PRIESTMaster of your soul
Life in Europe around 1600 was filled with uncertainty and danger. Vincent de Paul, a priest living comfortably in France, was enslaved after being abducted by pirates during a sea voyage. He was bought and sold several times in Muslim countries and ended up with a master who had converted to Islam to obtain his own freedom from slavery. Vincent’s example of steadfastness convinced the master to return to the Catholic faith, and they fled back to France and freedom. Every situation in life, no matter how dire, offers an opportunity to witness to the power of faith.Today's readings:
Job 3:1-3, 11-17, 20-23; Luke 9:51-56 (456).
“The disciples . . . asked, ‘Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?’ Jesus turned and rebuked them.”
