May 17, 1658: St. Vincent Gives Rules to the Congregation of the Mission

“O Savior! What Rules! And where do they come from? Had I ever thought of them? Not at all! For, Messieurs, I never had a thought either of our Rules, or of the Company, or of the very term ‘Mission.’ God did all that; men had no part in it.” – St. Vincent de Paul. Read the account of the moving ceremony when St. Vincent distributed the Rules to his Congregation on May 17, 1658. See the presentation
