It is always a great joy for me to speak about the dear brother Antoine Frederic Ozanam, one of the founders of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.
St. Vincent de Paul’s Ralph Middlecamp and Ray Sickinger on Catholic Faith Network Series “Encounter”
In this presentation, Frederic Ozanam defends the tradition of almsgiving in the face of criticism from the Socialists of his day.
“Youth are needed because of their boldness and audacity, even their imprudence. They provide us with new ideas and a new way of doing things that we had never imagined.” Frederic Ozanam
It is important that we see in this primitive text of Ozanam the passion preserved throughout his life when defending his convictions.
