No Time Like Now- the Life and Times of Frederic Ozanam. This video puts Frederic squarely in the life and times of a country facing massive social change. In doing so it presents a side of Frederic that is perhaps too little appreciated. There is much food for thought for the Vincentian Family as it comes to grips with working toward a hand up to those on the margins of society. The Society of St Vincent de Paul (Vinnies) in Australia produced the video which posted to YouTube by the SVDP in Scotland.
Questions to think about…
- What similarities struck you between the issues Frederic was concerned about in his day and the issues we face today?
- Was there anything about the video the surprised you about Frederic’s response to the conditions of his times?
- Who are the contemporary young Frederic’s in our midst?
