What was the spiritual road that St. Vincent traveled? Why have hundreds of thousands of people been inspired by his example and even followed his way? Robert Maloney addresses these intriguing questions and outlines in helpful, practical terms how to follow Vincent's way in today's world. He confesses that "the Christ of St. Vincent has long fascinated me. 'He describes himself as the evangelizer of the poor,' St. Vincent writes. It is this Christ who lies at the heart of St. Vincent's spirituality." Whether you follow Vincent's way of charity already or if you are interested as to what it might be, The Way of Vincent de Paul will help you discover the heart of this vibrant and modern way of life.
