We are pleased to present the new book written by Fr. Ronald Ramson C.M. on Frédéric Ozanam.
The Vincentian priest, also author of Praying with Frédéric Ozanam, brings a new approach to the main founder of our beloved Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and says that he did it “because I have such admiration for him”.
187 years after Frédéric’s death, the author highlights therein the following features in Frédéric Ozanam’s life:
- The closeness of the Ozanam family;
- Frédéric’s spirituality;
- The founding of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, along with six friends;
- His insights on a variety of subjects;
- His fairy-tale marriage;
- The last months of his life.
According to Fr Ronald Ramson, “I believe Ozanam ranks among the most remarkable individuals I have ever studied, a rare combination of intellectual genius and man of sanctity, an extremist in love”.
