Congregation of the Mission: Lent Day 4

Congregation of the Mission, Eastern Province USA
Lord, we pray for a new awakening to your immense love for us. Renew us. Send Your Holy Spirit to create for us a deep awareness that we are loved, that we are Your sons and Your daughters. And that everyone around us is a brother, a sister. Amen.

St. Vincent de Paul, Pray for us!

Fr. John Freund, C.M. is a Vincentian priest for the Eastern Province of the Congregation of the Mission, centered in Philadelphia, PA.


Through the 40 days of Lent, a new story will be posted daily. Make it your Lenten challenge to dive into the five Vincentian virtues of simplicity, meekness, mortification, humility and zeal. See how the everyday practices of being honest, approachable, self-disciplined, realistic and hardworking, in the spirit of St. Vincent, can transform your own life and the lives of others.
