This vintage book contains the memoirs of Vincent de Paul, translated into English from the original French. Vincent de Paul (1581 - 1660) was a French Roman Catholic priest famous for dedicating his life to helping the poor. Canonized in 1737, he is considered a saint in both the Anglican Communion and Catholic Church. Today, he is best remembered for his astonishing humility, compassion, and generosity. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in the life of this famous holy man, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of Christian literature. Contents include: "The Years of Apprenticeship", "In The Service of M. De Gondi", "M. Vincent and the Priesthood", "The Ordering of Charity", "Renaudot, The Friend of the Poor", "M. Vincent's Fellow-Labourers", "The Queen Regent and the Council of Conscience", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
