The originality of Saint Vincent’s version of Christianity
This was Christ’s mission, the reason for His coming to earth. This was why the missions preached by Saint Vincent de Paul and his priests (more than 800 of them from the house in Paris during the lifetime of Vincent) had for their goal “to make God known to the poor, announce to them Jesus Christ, tell them that the Kingdom of God is near and that Kingdom is for them.” [Conferences to the CM’s, Conference 195, p. 602]
