Vincentian In Action - One Young Man Blogs About his One Week on the Streets
Last edited 26th May 2015

Everything bothered me, every noise, every person, every thought! During our morning reflection I tried my hardest not to snap at other people. I kept reminding myself that I was feeling this way because I was tired and had a rough night. I've always believed it but now I actually know that when our guests at The Gubbio Project snap at us in the morning it isn't personal. How could you not be grumpy and frustrated after a night out on the streets?

St. Philip Neri
Last edited 26th May 2015

If one had to choose one saint who showed the humorous side of holiness that would Philip Neri. Born in 1515 in Florence, he showed the impulsiveness and spontaneity of his character from the time he was a boy. In fact one incident almost cost him his life. Seeing a donkey loaded with fruit for market, the little boy had barely formed the thought of jumping on the donkey's back before he had done it. The donkey, surprised, lost his footing, and donkey, fruit, and boy tumbled into the cellar with the boy winding up on the bottom! Miraculously he was unhurt.
