Son of Saint Vincent


John Carven gave this sermon on the fiftieth anniversary of Thomas Judge’s death. Carven explores the similarities between Vincent de Paul and Judge. Aside from founding the Congregation, and inspiring the foundation of the Daughters of Charity, Vincent established Confraternities of Charity after missions, organizations of lay people that would look after the parish’s poor. He was concerned with fulfilling the Church’s needs and obeying its authority. Religious communities also evolved from the work of Judge. He, too, organized lay people to address the Church’s needs under its authority.
