By Helen W. Searle SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL Vincent de Paul, born April 24, 1580, was one of six children of Jean de Paul and Bertrande de Moras. These French peas- ants lived in Pouy, in the south- west province of Gasqony, His rapid progress in his early schooling with the Franciscan Fathers at Acqs was outstand- ing. When a gentleman selected him to be an assistant instructor to his children he was able to continue his studies without fur- ther burdening his family. In 1596 he began his priestly stud- ies at the University of Toulouse and, at the age of 20, was or- dained a priest. Five years later, while travel- ing by sea from Marseilles to Narbonne, he was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in Algeria. He served as a slave in Tunis until he was able to es- cape two years afterwards. Pass- ing briefly through Rome. he re- turned to France as an instruc- tor to the family of Count Joigny, general of the galleys of France. Ten years later he started to preach missions and then, in 1619, he was named chaplain to the galley slaves. This position led him to the organization of confraternities among area churches to assisl Bernard Johnston Family Thanks him With his work with the poor. These successful efforts grew to the founding and establishment of hospitals and orphanages, in- cluding the ransoming of Chris- tian slaves from northern Africa. This group became known as the Lazarists, after their home Priory of Saint Lazarus. Throughout his life, Vincent continued to be an avid writer on spiritual topics but he is best known for the tan- gible help he gave to the poor, to people in need. His entire llfe was given over to the alleviation of human misery in all forms. Vincent was well-known for his generosity and, although this made him a famous man, his humble character was never af- fected. Humility always re- mained the hallmark of his life. At the age of 80, Vincent de Paul died in Paris September 27, 1660, having celebrated his dla- mond jubilee as a priest. Pope Clement XII canonized him in 1737, Pope Leo XIII named him patron saint of all charitable groups. Saint Vincent de Paul is honored on his feast day, Sep- tember 27. Today his work is carried on by Saint Vincent de Paul socie- ties throughout the world, dls- pensing material aid to those in need.

Glenna Harris Mission Meets With Mrs Aliff The Glenna Harris Mission Society met in the home of Mr and Mrs Rosco ALiff for their September meeting. Mrs Allff had flowers and vegetables from her garden placed in arrange- ments through out her country home. The ladies sang old favor- ite hymnsaccompanied on the piano by Kathy Harris. Hope Aliff preser ted the devotions she pre- sented a reading called "My Search For God." Kathy Harris taught the lesson on the woman of the Bible named Penlnnah from I Samuel Chapter One. Mrs Harris spoke of the jealousy that this woman had for others in her family and that jealousy finally conquered her, making her life miserable for herself and those around her. It was also noted that leading health authorities have determined the deeper cause of much illness is in the emotional reactions of life. Pro- longed bitter hatred can damage the brain and can cause heart disorder, high blood pressure, and acute indigestion all severe enough to kill a person. The les- son was concluded with the thought that in a Christians life there is no room for jealousy. Phyliss Harris and Hope Allff served refreshments. Emabelle Wood was welcomed as special quest. Mrs Allff gave a tour of her home. Those attending were Frances Neely, Melva Walthall, Jean Do/son.
