Saint Vincent, who had dedicated his life to the poor, was especially concerned about those persons who were overwhelmed by war. And with the exception of some brief periods of time, the 17th century in which St. Vincent lived was a century of wars. See List of Wars Involving France (Wikipedia)
See how St. Vincent took action through direct service to the victims of war, and bold attempts at dialogue with the powerful of his day.
