The inspiring video, “Michael Thio On The Legacy of Frederic Ozanam“, runs a little over an hour. Yes, that’s on the long side for an online video. But haven’t we all spent hours on real time-wasters? (Sitting in front of the television, for example.) One day this week, why not set aside an hour to get a longer-lasting benefit. Watch as Michael Thio, International President of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, delivers a very moving presentation challenging Vincentians to embrace the spirit of their founder Frederic Ozanam, while at the same time encouraging SSVP leaders to run the organization in a goal-oriented, business-like way. “Do not be afraid to take risks,” Pope Francis once advised him.
The best hour. We are blessed to have Michael Thio as a leader.
