A Year with the Saints – 4 March

Entry

He who allows himself to be ruled or guided by the lower and animal part of his nature, deserves to be called a beast rather than a man. Saint Vincent de Paul

Philip, Count of Nemours, after leading a very bad life, experienced on his deathbed wonderful contrition, so that he begged his confessor to have his body carried to the public square and left there, saying, “I have lived like a dog, and like a dog I ought to die.”
