Memorial of Saint Vincent de Paul, Priest

The psalm today provides us with a magnificent truth for contemplation: “In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.” God’s people can turn to this reality with confidence.  Consider the “ages” of your own life, the peaks and valleys over time.  In what ways has God provided a refuge in the midst of your trials, suffering, and sublime joys?
Do we really believe that God has our best interests at heart, that we can rely upon him for nourishment and protection?  Sometimes we like to “go at it alone,” but that only leads to loneliness and desperation.  How much better to be faithful in trusting our God who is supremely faithful to us!
