Saint Vincent de Paul was born France in 1581, the son of peasant farmers. Ordained in 1600, he dedicated himself to serving the poor and was canonized in 1737. Pope Leo XIII made him the patron of all charitable societies, including the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, founded in 1833. He died on Sept. 27, 1660.
