Exploring Vincentian themes is part of our Lenten Shift, metaphorically “shifting gears” in Lent, can be a helpful process. Change what you do. Change what you see, change what you read. We fast so we can feed the deeper parts of ourselves. This is the second of a four-week series that invites us to feed our souls with our Vincentian and ecclesial traditions.
