Vincentian approaches to Lent

by | Feb 10, 2013 | Spirituality and Spiritual Practice

WWVD – What would Vincent do for Lent today?Vincentians today can look at two sources for an answer. The most obvious is of course what the successor sof Vincent write of  in their  Lenten Letters.

Vinformation also offers some ideas on connecting with our Vincentian Family heritage during Lent. As the Superior General’s Lenten 2012 greeting reminds us, these forty days of Lent are an ideal time for reflection, connection, and action; a time for deepening our understanding of our founders and the rich heritage they have left us. Here are some online tools that you may find useful. (The 2013 letter is expected shortly.)
