The Archives and Special Collections Department of DePaul University's John T. Richardson Library has a special collection of rare books known as "St. Vincent's Reading List." These volumes are works known to have been read by Saint Vincent, or that were published during his lifetime and illustrate the historical, political, religious, spiritual, and other contexts of seventeenth century France within which he, Saint Louise, and the first members of the Vincentian were formed.

I recently had occasion to do some research on Frederic's social thought.
I knew he had anticipated both Karl Marx' Manifesto and Leo" XIII's Great Social encyclical "Rerum Novarum"
I was surprised to learn the the "See - Judge - Act" methodology of Cardinal Cardijn can be traced back in some degree to Ozanam.
The lineage runs something like this....
"Although it was Cardijn who formulated the famous expression "see, judge, act" it was Léon Ollé-Laprune who was…Continue

I can not resist posting this video "New Century, Same Faith". Although a blatant ad for Kindle it does illustrate how Vincentian resources could be made available.
PS Kudos on the Virtual Exhibit that just went public. I hope the famvin notice will draw some attention to this new mode of making our heritage available.

Mission et Charite was a publication undertaken by the scholarly Andre Dodin, C.M., (1911-1996), with the help of his close friend and colleague, Maurice Vansteenkiste, C.M., (1915-2007), trained in biblical studies. Its purpose was highlighted on its nearly invariable cover, "Doctrine, Action." Similar to the Petites Annales published 1900-1903, this journal sought to explore the dynamism of the teaching of Vincent de Paul. Coming after the celebration of the tercentenary of the deaths of…Continue
