Publisher's Note: He Hears the Cry of the Poor is based on conferences and talks Father Maloney gave to Vincentians and Daughters of Charity during the last two years. Drawing from the letters and conferences of Vincent de Paul, he then makes the solid connection to contemporary issues. It touches on vital questions for religious communities today: the renewal of community and prayer life; the apostolate; the growing international character of communities and the related inter-cultural challenges; inculturation; and the shift in vocations from North to South. Father Maloney offers his many years of experience and expertise to relay an optimistic outlook for the future.
