Description

Shortly after being ordained in 1600, Vincent's life changed forever when pirates sold him into slavery in northern Africa. When he was freed two years later, he dedicated his life to working for the poor and involving the laity in charitable works. This pamphlet includes a brief spiritual biography of this heroic servant of God, reflections on particular aspects of his spirituality, and questions that can be applied to our own lives. Like the other pamphlets in Liguori's An Hour With... series, An Hour With Saint Vincent de Paul will help you turn everything off for an hour, creating a brief period of reflection, inspiration, and prayer within your busy daily routine. It can become a miniature retreat that will refresh your spirit. Pamphlet

Back cover copy

An Hour With Saint Vincent de Paul offers insight into the life and spirituality of the poor farmboy whose intelligence and compassion led to a lifetime of serving those most in need. Vincent found joy in serving people who were poor or neglected because they represented Christ on earth. He considered charity to be the duty of every man and woman and established many lay organizations to work with the priests and brothers in aiding the less fortunate. He remains a powerful model of a life given freely to the service of the poor. Part of the "An Hour With..." pamphlet series, An Hour With Saint Vincent de Paul will help you turn everything off for an hour, creating a time of reflection, recollection, learning, contemplation, and prayer.
