Dear friends, dear AIC volunteers,
As every year, we are pleased to share with you the letter that Father Tomaž Mavrič, CM, Superior General, addresses to the entire Vincentian Family on the occasion of the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul.
In this special year, as we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the ‘Light of Pentecost’ experienced by Saint Louise, Sister Françoise Petit, Superioress General of the Company of the Daughters of Charity, offers us a beautiful reflection. She invites us to get to the heart of this event in order to progress together and strengthen our spiritual and missionary momentum. To do this, she invites us to follow, personally, in each branch and together on the ground, three paths of concrete encounter: a path of listening, a path of missionary boldness and a path of trust.
We take the opportunity of this Vincentian feast to also share with you the first Newsletter created by the International Vincentian Family.
Hoping you will enjoy reading this material, we wish you all a very happy Feast of Saint Vincent!
Remaining united in prayer, we send you our very best wishes,
Tayde de Callataÿ and Bénédicte de Bellefroid
