Join us for our Sundays at CTU event on Sunday, September 7

3pm - Lecture by Fr. Edward R. Udovic, CM, Senior Executive for University Mission at DePaul University. He will speak on the topic: "What halos often hide: A Case Study of Saint Vincent de Paul"
 
Saint Vincent de Paul lived from 1581 to 1660 and was 
canonized in 1737. Since that time, he has been portrayed almost 
universally as a kindly old man, carrying an orphan in his arms or 
reaching down to pick one up from the snow. These sentimental 
images do not do justice to the force of will and holiness which 
characterized this bold and uncompromising Church reformer and 
defender of the poor. This talk will explore the ways in which 
saints’ halos and pious myths too often blunt the 
force of their true evangelical witness.
