O glorious Saint Vincent, heavenly patron of all charitable associations and father of all who are in misery, whilst thou was on earth thou didst never cast out any who came to thee; ah, consider by what evils we are oppressed and come to our assistance! Obtain from thy Lord help for the poor, relief for the infirm, consolation for the afflicted, protection for the abandoned, a spirit of generosity for the rich, the grace of conversion for sinners, zeal for priests, peace for the Church, tranquility and order for all nations, and salvation for them all. Yea, let all men prove the effects of thy merciful intercession, so that, being helped by thee in the miseries of this life, we may be united to thee in the life to come, where there shall be no more grief, nor weeping, nor sorrow, but joy and gladness and everlasting happiness.
A plenary indulgence once a month, on the usual conditions, for the daily devout recitation of this prayer (S. C. Ind., June 23, 1885; S.P. Ap., May 20, 1933).
