The June offering in the monthly Vincentian eBook series is Vincent de Paul and Justice.
Abstract: Vincent enabled his contemporaries to see the prevailing situation of misery, to understand its causes, and to heal its consequences. That which in Vincent’s time was an object of charity, has now become a recognized right. Indeed Vincent acted as though these were recognized as evident rights: the right to life (abandoned children), the right to daily bread (soup kitchens and the distribution of food to the hungry), the right to health care (hospital and caring for the infirm in their homes), the right to housing (providing shelter for refugees), the right to respect (care for the mentally challenged, prisoners and the galley slaves), the right to a dignified old age (hospices and providing housing for the elderly), the right to work (providing seeds and other work tools to the people living in areas devastated by war), the right to education (the establishment of schools).
