The Vincentian Question, “What Shall Be Done?” is framed in such a way that its answer implies action. When offering guidance on Charity to his confreres, the Daughters, the Confraternities, and to us, Vincent is clear: “Love of God and of neighbor is authenticated in visible action.” Charity is the true characteristic of the Love of God; it cannot remain idle. In fact, a life dedicated to Charity demands fearless, unending work involving the “sweat of our brows and the expense of our arms.
