Robert Maloney writes… “Historians have often highlighted St. Vincent’s organizational skills. He did not, however, merely organize; he formed the groups and persons that he assembled. In fact, the letters, documents, and conferences in the fourteen volumes of his extant works are, for the most part, aimed at the formation of those whom Vincent had gathered together in the service of the poor.”
Visit his full article “Being a Vincentian, Being a Formator” to discover his contributions to formation for service, especially of the poor.
