PRODUCT INCLUDES: 24 mp3 audio files, 3 pdf files: slide notes, timeline and prayer
DESCRIPTION: As Christ's legate, this Spanish Dominican led an extraordinary apostolate that spanned all of Western Europe. He worked towards the conversion of Jews and Muslims with unparalleled zeal. He brought many lapsed Christians to contrite conversion and fervent penance. He helped heal rivalries among the Spanish nobility and prevented a civil war in Spain.
St. Vincent served as papal confessor until he lay on his deathbed. Yet Our Lord appeared to St. Vincent, in the company of St.Francis and St. Dominic, and commissioned him to preach the Last Judgment. Miraculously revived by Christ, and sanctioned by both the Roman and Avignon popes, St. Vincent spent the last twenty years of his life as an itinerant missionary. Huge multitudes followed him as he preached the End Times. St. Vincent is one of history's greatest miracle workers and he even resurrected numerous from the dead. It was through his wisdom and tireless efforts that the Great Western Schism was finally healed (those times when Christendom was plagued by two and three rival popes).
In his bull of canonization, Pius II affirmed that St. Vincent Ferrer was the Angel of the Apocalypse.
This course informs Catholics about the life, work, and writings of our Foundation's patron saint. We desperately need the spirit of St. Vincent Ferrer in these troubled times. Our hope is that this audio presentation will help many people grow in their devotion to this amazing saint and pray for his aid and intercession.
