The Vincentians - Volume 4
Edited by Joseph E. Dunne, Benjamin Walters and Andrew Yankech. With soaring membership, the Congregation resumed many former posts and embraced new ones. The Ottoman Empire missions stretched from Bulgaria through the Middle East. The missions thrived in the United States, Latin America (Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru), and the Spanish colonies of the Caribbean (notably Cuba) and the Philippines. Vincentian China continued to grow with European and native confreres. The Missioners were greatly helped by others in the Vincentian Family, especially the Daughters of Charity; organizations developed by them, like the Children of Mary; the Ladies of Charity; and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. The tight control of Jean-Baptiste Etienne and Eugene Bore guided the expansion but met resistance from new ideas and cultures.
"Fr. Rybolt's clear, comprehensive, and well-documented work is a great contribution to Vincentian scholarship. It is quite readable, engaging, and insightful, as one discovers the unfolding of the Congregation amidst the currents of the centuries. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to know how subsequent generations embraced the unique charism that the "first sons" of St. Vincent handed on to them."
Rev. G. Gregory Gay, C.M.
