Vincent Woke Up the Church

Live from Emmitsburg courtesy of Fr. Aidan Rooney – Father Tom Mckenna of the Eastern Province speaks almost on the exact day of the 400th anniversary of the birth of the  Vincentian Charism.

Some quick thoughts

  • Charismatic people wake up the Church
  • They capture people’s imagination
  • Today we celebrate the wave of energy set in motion by Vincent in 1617
  • The preacher woke up the people
  • The preacher was caught by the preaching and organizes the first of many other groups
  • Break out the song… sing it today
