The originality of Saint Vincent’s version of Christianity
Affective identification. Before all else. Vincent suffered with the poor that he encountered; the poor who did not know where to go nor what to do, who were suffering, who were increasing by the number each day, “they are my burden and pain.” This terrible cry reveals to us the secret of the heart of Vincent de Paul.
