In dedicating this year as the Vincentian Year of New Evangelization, Superior General Gregory Gay, C.M., wrote: “A key aspect of [the new evangelization] is to rediscover and re-encounter Jesus with love in our hearts, deepening our relationship with him to grow in discipleship. It is a personal deepening of our faith in the God of Jesus Christ, a fruit of the Holy Spirit.” Did you know that the primary mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is for its members to grow in holiness, through their service to those who are living in poverty? After an experience of service, it is good to spend some time reflecting on what occurred, what you learned, and how Christ was present. Some helpful resources for personal growth can be found on VinFormation. They can be used for individual study or can be discussed as a group.
