This volume contains the rules, conferences and writings of these two Vincentian founders who, through service to the poor, left an indelible mark on the church in France in the seventeenth century and beyond. Louise de Marillac (1591–1660) first came to Vincent de Paul (1581–1660) for spiritual direction and they became coworkers and friends for the rest of their lives. This record of their extensive writing allows readers to better understand their motivation for living out a vibrant faith in service to those who could not give anything in return.
