In this meditation, Fr. Jack Melito, C.M., focuses on the virtue of Simplicity as understood and lived by Vincent de Paul. Experiencing the God of the Universe while living a life of Simplicity reveals to the practitioner the efficacious nature of that virtue. In whatever age, a life ordered by the virtue of Simplicity is a life readily identified as countercultural.
