Saint Vincent de Paul
Apostle of the Poor and Homeless
Defender of the Faith
Our cry rings out to the whole world. Take notice! We are in the times of great Saints in the making. We are in the times of unequaled sinners. Enemies of God, we put you on notice: We’ve been there before; we’ve suffered the arrows of persecution in times past and we are still here. We are not finished. For the last 2000 years, just as it appeared the end was near, the Church was about to collapse, the world was coming to an end, God raised up Super Saints, those who said Yes to God’s call to holiness. One such great Saint in the making, one soul who reached for and received the crown of glory in Heaven, was St. Vincent de Paul.
The life of Saint Vincent de Paul was unusual in that at one time he was sold in slavery.
The became known as the Apostle of the Poor and he is one of Catholicism's best known Saints to this day.
