The originality of Saint Vincent’s version of Christianity
Vincent would try to lift the poor out of their corporal and spiritual poverty and to make the rich, the well-off, and the lords put themselves at the service of the poor, making them understand that the only reason for having possessions is to use them to aid their brothers and sisters in need and thus reap their own eternal reward.
