    Thank you for sharing this image . Through this likeness of Vincent with relic affixed,you have enabled this viewer to behold the beautiful eternal presence of our one true and triune God. May each of us become similar icons to countless others. Thus,by God’s grace modeled by Saint Vincent de Paul,we can bring the personalization of a depersonalized world to many people longing for the presence of God-even if they don’t know that is their heart’s desire.
