Three Marks of Vincentian Service
A quick one-minute video message on Vincentian Values from Mark McGreevy OBE of Depaul International/Depaul Group Chief Executive. Mark McGreevy is also a Founder of the Institute of Global Homelessness in Chicago. [See below for what OBE means.]
Remember, the three marks
- serve the poorest of the poor
- take risks on their behalf, and
- be fundamentally about action not words
And three matching quotes of St. Vincent:
It is a source of consolation to us that Our Lord seems to want to use the Company everywhere for the service and relief of the poorest of the poor. (V:66)
What price there would be if, under the guise of deference and humility, we were to abandon the honor of God so as not to risk our own. (III:44)
Let’s work, let’s work, let’s go to the assistance of the poor country people who are waiting for us. (XI:391)
Am I Willing …
- to serve, or support those who, serve the poorest of the poor?
- to take risks on their behalf?
- to walk the talk?
