Dosen, Anthony J.
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v9 n1 p47-57 Sep 2005
St. Vincent de Paul is a popular saint in the contemporary practice of Catholicism. This article explains why, providing a historical overview of the many influences in Vincent's life and demonstrating how central Vincentian themes can be incarnated in educational institutions. Vincent's passion--love of the poor--remains a compelling challenge today.
