In this year of Welcoming the Stranger, FamVin offers the following graphic presentation titled “Open My Eyes”, based on a prayer from the St. Vincent de Paul Society. It reflects the essence of our ministry and mission.

The Prayer

Open my eyes that I may see

Open my eyes that I may see the deepest needs of men, women, and children

Move my hands that I may feed the hungry

Touch my heart that it may bring warmth to the despairing

Teach me the generosity that welcomes strangers

Let me share my possessions with people in need

Give me the care that strengthens the sick

Help me share in the quest to set prisoners free

In sharing our anxieties and our love, our poverty, and prosperity, we partake of your divine presence.
