St. Vincent On the Incarnation: Christmas Video

by | Dec 18, 2016 | Formation

On this fourth Sunday of Advent we offer a video in which St. Vincent contemplates the Heart of Christ and shares his reflections.

Questions for reflection and dialogue (from Au temps de St Vincent-de-Paul … et aujourd’hui)

  1. How do I understand the phrase: The Word became flesh? How do I give meaning to this understanding in my life and my activity?
  2. “The Word made his dwelling among us!” Can these words lead us to a more profound reflection and a deeper commitment to our vocation? Can these words change our way of being present in the midst of the world?
  3. Vincent was convinced of the importance of the Incarnation for his various foundations … what importance do we give to the Incarnation?
