The More Love You Must Give Them

September 27 
“You will find out that Charity is a heavy burden to carry, heavier than the kettle of soup and the full basket. But you will keep your gentleness and your smile. It is not enough to give soup and bread. This the rich can do. You are the servant of the poor, always smiling and good-humored. They are your masters, terribly sensitive and exacting master you will see. And the uglier and the dirtier they will be, the more unjust and insulting, the more love you must give them. It is only for your love alone that the poor will forgive you the bread you give to them.”
-St. Vincent de Paul
Today's Reflection:
Write down what the above quote means to you personally.  And then write down one way to live it today.
St. Vincent de Paul, pray for us!
