"Love is inventive to the point of infinity."

St. Vincent de Paul said that. It isn't just a refreshing way to consider love. It is a most apt description of the way love acts. Love is personal, and because it is, love addresses a person, a family, a parish, indeed the world, as if for the first time.

Today is the Memorial of St. Vincent de Paul. A toast to all the men and women who make his apostolate their apostolate and assist the church to respond to the poor, who are Christ among us (cf. Matthew 25.40)!
