Compassionate Christ, Louise ministered to the needs of your people, give us courage to
walk in her footsteps.
You inspired Louise with a great love for the poor and the abandoned, grant us the grace to
serve with the same spirit of love.
You inspired Louise with compassion for the destitute and sorrowful, may we love them
tenderly and respect them deeply.
May the Vincentian Family continue to grow and multiply throughout the world, so that the
poor will know God’s love in a tangible way. Amen
