Join us at St. Vincent de Paul church to celebrate traditional Vespers in Gregorian chant!  Thus writes St. Hilary of  Poitiers (c. 300 – c. 368)  about the healing  of the paralytic, which we find in the Gospel of the 18th Sunday after Pentecost: In this paralytic the whole Gentile world is offered for healing, he is therefore brought by the ministration of Angels; he is called Son, because he is God’s work; the sins of his soul which the Law could not remit are remitted him; for faith only justifies. Lastly, he shews the power of the resurrection, by taking up his bed, teaching that all sickness shall then be no more found in the body.
