St. Vincent de Paul
He was born of a very poor family in France in 1581.
He studied Theology and became an ordained priest in 1600.
While on a mission, he fell into the hands of African pirates and was slaved for two years. After his escape, he continued to preach his missions and devoted all of his time and efforts to charitable societies for the poor, hungry, sick and those in need.
Charity was his predominant virtue.
I chose St. Vincent de Paul for the Saint Tag Swap hosted by Gina Grable. There are twelve members. Each of us had to pick a saint, make twelve tags and mail them back to Gina. In return, she will make twelve Saint Tag Books and give one to each of us at Silver Bella in November.
This swap is my third and final Silver Bella swap...whew! I am done! (where's that fork...) The deadline wasn't until October 15th, I'm so proud of myself for being a month early. I proudly pranced to the post office earlier this week and sent this off to Gina. Woo whoo...I feel lighter already!!! ;)
