Cover Page
This month’s cover features a Catholic holy card depicting St. Vincent de Paul standing with three children. St. Vincent de Paul (1581–1660), the patron saint of charity, is most often shown surrounded by the poor and destitute. This particular holy card, dating from the mid-to-late 20th century and produced by Galerie Arts et Traditions Chrétienne, seeks to maintain this traditional iconography while updating the style for a contemporary audience.
