St. Vincent de Paul and the “New Poor”
Those whom we refer to as “the new poor” are frequently “new” because we have just discovered them… yet in reality these men and women have been poor for a long period of time prior to “our discovery”. It seems to be difficult for society to see and recognize those men and women who are poor. Indeed, civilization, but perhaps it is more precise to say, the present economic system, has its own poor people; in fact it seems to create poor people in all those countries where this economic system is implanted. Such is the situation of the disabled, those who “have missed” the train of progress and who can never ever board that train.
