St. Vincent de Paul: Faith in Action.

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. Vincent de Paul: "His zeal for souls knew no limit; all occasions were to him opportunities to exercise it. When he died the poor of Paris lost their best friend and humanity a benefactor unsurpassed in modern times."

Saint Vincent de Paul shows a life of faith in action.  His works of mercy speak louder than any sermon as his life was dedicated to help the poor, sick, and unfortunate slaves.  His biography is an example of love in action as he organized all kinds of charity ministries and mobilized believers into working towards those less fortunate.  Tomorrow, September 27 is his memorial and he is a worthy example of faith that is demonstrated by works, a faith that is alive and active, obeying our Lord's commandment to love others as we love ourselves.   Read his bio here
