our eyes in childlike wonder to the incredible multicultural Face of God!
This guide is a tool to help Vincentians begin this process and to help them see diversity as a genuine blessing and as a necessary way to encounter a global world that needs the Society's presence more than ever. As one Vincentian member recently remarked: "We are all parts of a universal puzzle. We need to put all the pieces together. Isn't it marvelous that we are all different? Each one of us has skills and gifts to share. When we put that expertise and gifts together, we can do extraordinary things."
