J. Patrick Murphy’s goal is to “discover Vincent [de Paul]’s theory and practice of hospitality in the seventeenth century and make sense of it in the twenty-first.” He does this by defining five components of hospitality: “mission, passion, make friends, listen to your heart, and active hospitality.” He explains how Vincent acted on each. Murphy also notes how eminent business leaders of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries exhibit these components within their industries. He concludes with hospitality lessons for Vincentian leaders.
