Ozanam in the Vincentian Tradition: A Man of Ideas, A Man of Action

  1. 1. Ozanam in the Vincentian Tradition: A Man of Ideas, A Man of Action
  2. 2. Ozanam devoted his life both • to the service of "Eternal Truth" in the realm of ideas and • to the service of the poor in the realm of action
  3. 3. In fact, we know from his writings that Ozanam repeatedly linked action to theory.
  4. 4. “...religious ideas can have no value if they have not a practical and positive value.” In his words: Ainslie Coates, trans., Letters of Frederic Ozanam. New York: Benziger, 1886, p. 97.
  5. 5. "Let’s not relegate our beliefs to the domain of speculation and theory; let’s take them seriously, and let our life be the continual expression of them." In his words: Ainslie Coates, trans., Letters of Frederic Ozanam. New York: Benziger, 1886, pp. 63-67.
  6. 6. “...I have found that Christianity had been for me, until now, a sphere of ideas, a sphere of worship, but not sufficiently a sphere of morality, of intentions, of actions.” In his words:
  7. 7. “Religion serves less to think than to act; and if it teaches to live, it is in order to teach to die ...The value of Christianity is in this, and not in the attraction which its dogmas may present to men of imagination and of mind.” In his words: Ainslie Coates, trans., Letters of Frederic Ozanam. New York: Benziger, 1886, pp. 96-98.
