Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St Vincent de Paul
John Rybolt, CM
St. Vincent de Paul was faithful to meditation, which sets a good example for us in our busy world. Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Vincent de Paul presents his thoughts in a way that can help us to spend some quiet time meditating.
The writings of St. Vincent de Paul are mainly meditative in style, keeping with the peace-filled and prayerful season. Vincent was keenly aware of the greater issues of our life in Christ, whose Incarnation is celebrated at this season. This book of seasonal meditations uses selections from his writings, along with scriptural reflections to encourage us on our Advent journey.
His thoughtful words will lead to a deeper relationship with God, a better appreciation of our own Christian life, and greater love for all, especially the poor.
