Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, founder of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, wanted to ‘encircle the globe in a network of charity’. The Society continues to live by this mission today, maintaining active membership across five continents. 15 Days of Prayer with Blessed Frédéric marks the 200th anniversary of Ozanam’s birth. Verheyde’s meditations reflect the breadth of Ozanam’s interests: his love for his family; his desire to proclaim the faith authentically; and his desire to reconcile science and religion, wealth and poverty, believers and unbelievers. Each meditation includes reflection questions that highlight Ozanam’s insistence that faith be put into action.
