agostinaSt. Agostina of the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida is an inspiring example of the Vincentian blend of contemplation and action. She had a great devotion to the Mother of God, and her favorite prayer was the Rosary. She served the sick at Santo Spirito Hospital, saying: “We will lie down for such a long time after death that it is worthwhile to keep standing while we are alive. Let us work now; one day we will rest.” See the new presentation in Famvin’s VinFormation monthly section devoted to the Year of Faith.
