Three Vincentian Values

On this Friday, a quick video message from Mark McGreevy OBE of Depaul International/Depaul Group Chief Executive:

Remember, the three characteristics:

serve the poorest of the poor

take risks on their behalf, and

be fundamentally about action not words

And three matching quotes of St. Vincent:

It is a source of consolation to us that Our Lord seems to want to use the Company everywhere for the service and relief of the poorest of the poor. (V:66)

What price there would be if, under the guise of deference and humility, we were to abandon the honor of God so as not to risk our own. (III:44)

Let’s work, let’s work, let’s go to the assistance of the poor country people who are waiting for us. (XI:391)
