  • Pandemic, Poverty, and Power: Biosocial Ethics of Global Solidarity for

    • Authors: Stan Chu Ilo Ph.D.
      Abstract: Stan Chu Ilo takes a detailed look at the vulnerabilities of the poor within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and of global inequities in general, with a special focus on marginalized people in Africa. Because of its impact on the social determinants of health, which are explained, racism has exacerbated the pandemic’s effects. For this reason, Chu Ilo explores different definitions of power. He advocates a biosocial ethical approach to health—one that considers how people’s living conditions and behavior on both the global and individual levels affect health care decision-making and health outcomes. He discusses the need for the Church and the world to commit to a “prophetic praxis of hope”—“a change in mindsets, change in our ecclesial priorities and practices, and change in the Church’s teachings, institutional culture, and hierarchy of power and privilege.” He calls Catholic universities like DePaul to be “laborator[ies] for creating a new global vision of justice that is built on the power of love.”

  • Mass Incarceration, COVID-19, and Race as Exposure to Early Death

    • Authors: Traci Schlesinger Ph.D.
      Abstract: A majority of the largest, single-site outbreaks of COVID-19 infections in the United States have been in prisons and jails since the beginning of the pandemic. These outbreaks threaten the lives and well-being of incarcerated people, correctional staff, and people who live in the communities to which incarcerated people return. This study employs both linear and logistic multivariate regression models to examine data from the UCLA’s COVID Prison Data Project, IPUMS CPS, the National Center for Health Statistics, and the Prison Policy Initiative to better understand the facility, county, and state-level predictors of COVID-19 infections and deaths in correctional facilities. The study finds that while some facility-level characteristics are associated with infections and deaths, county-level racial and economic characteristics matter more. In particular, facilities in counties with more Latinx and Indigenous people and lower average incomes have higher infection rates. Likewise, the odds that someone in a facility has died from COVID-19 are higher in counties with more Latinx people, lower average incomes, more college graduates, and fewer people who never married. Moreover, state-level policy changes to address this crisis have failed to do so effectively. While this study is unable to access how county-level characteristics influence these facility-level outcomes, it does demonstrate a clear connection between racialization and exposure to early death.

  • The COVID-19 Pandemic and Homelessness: Depaul International Responds

    • Authors: J. Patrick Murphy C.M; Ph.D.
      Abstract: A member of the Vincentian Family, the nonprofit Depaul International serves people who are homeless throughout Europe and the US, a mission which became much more difficult during the COVID-19 pandemic. After giving some of the organization’s history, J. Patrick Murphy describes the challenges that staff and service users faced and how both groups (and donors) responded in extraordinary ways. He offers specific stories from different countries that illustrate how “staff shared common Vincentian values, provided leadership, increased communication, and shared resources and best practices across boundaries.” Depaul International members were asked what Vincent de Paul would say of their work, and their reflections are presented in their original words.

  • “Learning Not to Despair of Our Own Age”: The Society of Saint Vincent
           de Paul in This Time of Pandemic

    • Authors: Timothy P. Williams
      Abstract: In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul marked the 175th anniversary of its founding in the United States. The Society’s usual works are described. Timothy Williams explains how the organization adapted to continue them during the pandemic, and particularly how it substituted for the home visits that have been the Society’s signature work since its founding. The Vincentian Family and the Society were created in times of political strife, widespread illness, and economic catastrophe, so the words and actions of their founders can inspire and comfort us now. The Society took special action in response to George Floyd’s murder. As Williams writes, “Our response began with self-examination, grounded in our spirituality and in our obligations to each other as Christians. To understand the faults we perceive in society, we must have the humility to examine and accept our own faults.” A webinar series allowed members to share their stories related to social issues, such as economic discrimination, crime, and violence. After the webinars, paired groups of members of different races shared more of their experiences. This strengthened their understanding of each other and equipped them to better serve their neighbors.

  • Online Community Engagement Enhances Service Learning

    • Authors: Dan Baron et al.
      Abstract: DePaul University’s Steans Center for Community-Based Service Learning created a program called Online Community Engagement (OCE) to safely connect students with communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. As this article says, “OCE provided self- directed modules including reading materials and videos for students focused on issues such as mental health, immigration, community organizing, police accountability, and gentrification. The modules culminated with a live online events on Fridays featuring guests from DePaul and Chicago communities.” OCE proved highly successful, especially because it provided a way for students to meet community organizers. The article profiles some of the most salient lessons featured in OCE as well as student feedback about them. OCE will remain part of the post-pandemic curriculum.

  • Critical Perspectives on Our Current Moment: An Experiment in Teaching for

    • Authors: Jane Eva Baxter Ph.D. et al.
      Abstract: During the summer of 2020, the DePaul College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS) offered twenty-two incoming students a special interdisciplinary online course, giving them the opportunity to learn and reflect on the crises of 2020 with faculty, staff, and one another. This article’s authors (who are the class’s faculty and students) describe the construction and execution of this course and reflect on the experience. Course topics included “the social contract; equity and justice; historical, cultural, and artistic responses to upheaval; global interconnections; and the way forward.” The course fulfilled DePaul’s mission to help students “engage questions of intellect and ethics in our contemporary world.” Students created reflective maps that connected what they were learning to their own lives and feelings, and they submitted videos explaining the project. Five appear in this article, illustrating how students learned to think differently and embark on new kinds of action.

  • A Vincentian Reading of the Pandemic: Hope Beyond All Reasonable

    • Authors: Guillermo Campuzano C.M.
      Abstract: Guillermo Campuzano, vice president of DePaul University’s Office of Mission and Ministry, reflects on the inequities and societal and environmental fragility that the COVID-19 pandemic reveals. Vincentian spirituality and theology have always been attuned to what is happening in the world and finding God’s call to action within current events. They can be used to maintain hope and a sense of God’s presence in the midst of the world disaster and can shape our response to the problems we are facing. Campuzano describes the pandemic’s effects on the university community and how the university’s leadership responded, drawing lessons that can be applied to society as a whole. As he writes, “God is calling us. We are being asked not only to respond adequately to the emergency, but to transform our way of life, and to relate to nature, to others, and to God in a more humane way as Jesus showed us in the gospels. . . . God is found not in the virus, but in the strength to respond to it with wisdom, solidarity, intelligence, and compassion.”

  • The Chapelle des Lazaristes and Reliquary Shrine of St. Vincent de Paul,
           1850 to 1860: An Exposé of Competing Aesthetic Schemes & Their
           Resolutions in the Alliance des Arts

    • Authors: Simone Zurawski Ph.D.
      Abstract: Simone Zurawski describes the history, art, and architecture of the motherhouse church of the Congregation of the Mission, the Chapelle des Lazaristes in Paris. She also compares it to the Congregation’s church at the original site of their motherhouse and explains what the Congregation’s leadership was trying to accomplish with the design of the new chapelle. The chapelle is the site of Vincent de Paul’s reliquary shrine, and Zurawski describes the châsse or case that houses Vincent’s remains, which was designed by the legendary silversmith Jean-Baptiste-Claude Odiot. She explains how it was incorporated into the altar’s design. Through her research, Zurawski is able to identify Paul-Marie Gallois as the chapelle’s architect. She also profiles Arthur Martin, who designed the high altar in neomedieval style, and François Carbonnier, who painted the archway that “ unifies the [chapelle’s] space.” Finally, Zurawski recounts how the Congregation’s superior general, Jean-Baptiste Etienne, had to balance the forces of Gallicanism and Ultramontanism and how the chapelle’s blend of French and Italian art signifies that balance. She also reflects on the chapelle’s possible influence on the design of Saint Vincent de Paul Church on DePaul University’s campus.

  • “So that they may be able to live and die as good Christians”: The
           Early History of the Nom de Jésus Hospital in Catholic Reformation

    • Authors: Alison Forrestal Ph.D.
      Abstract: The Hôpital de Nom de Jésus was an important establishment associated with Louise de Marillac, Vincent de Paul, and their communities. The Daughters of Charity were responsible for staffing this hospital beginning in1653, and it survived until the mid-eighteenth century. However, scholars have not had any records of it to study until now. Here, Alison Forrestal presents the Rule of Nom de Jésus, with an English translation, “offering a commentary on its historical context and its composition.” The Rule gives scholars insight into how the hospital developed and shows concern for the corporal and spiritual well-being of those it served. During this time in France, “hospital” was a broad term that referred to “any institution that provided either shelter or medical care, or both, to pilgrims, the indigent, the ill, or the elderly on a short- or long-term basis.” Sometimes such institutions forcibly confined the poor, but this was not the case with Nom de Jésus. Instead, it was a “residential home and workshop for Catholics who could not live independently because of age, infirmity, or extreme poverty.” Along with the Rule, Forrestal explores the foundation and early operation of this hospital and describes the demographics of its residents.

  • Emmanuel Bailly: The Advisor and Friend of Christian Youth

    • Authors: Ralph Middlecamp
      Abstract: Frédéric Ozanam’s legacy overshadows contributions of other Society of Saint Vincent de Paul founders, such as Emmanuel Bailly. A man who worked in the background, Bailly should be better recognized, both for his role as a founder and for the part he played in the restoration of Catholicism in post-revolutionary France. Ralph Middlecamp discusses Bailly’s life and work, which was rooted in his Vincentian heritage. A teacher and a journalist, Bailly mentored young men in faith and good works, and the Conference of History that he started brought the Society’s founders together. He published several newspapers addressing contemporary social issues and defending Catholicism. His office was the Society’s first meeting place. Bailly became the Society’s first president, arranged for its members to receive instruction in home visits of the poor, and helped the group escape repression. The impetus and the basic outline for the Society’s Rule came from him and was rooted in his knowledge of the Congregation of the Mission’s Rules. His circulars to the Society provided much needed advice. In conclusion, Middlecamp explains why Bailly is so unknown today and summarizes his children’s achievements as leaders in the French Church’s renewal.

  • François Lallier (1814–1886): “One of the Pillars of the
           Building Started”

    • Authors: Raymond Sickinger Ph.D.
      Abstract: François Lallier, a successful lawyer, judge, and chevalier, was a close friend of Frédéric Ozanam and a founder of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. In the words of Raymond Sickinger, he was “a perfect example of a professional person who is deeply engaged in his community and who helps to transform it, just as Ozanam and the early members of the Society had envisioned.” Lallier’s life, friendship with Ozanam, and contributions to the Society are recounted. He served as secretary general and also established a new branch of the Society in Sens. Excerpts from his letters to Ozanam and from his circular letters to the Society are quoted at length. As Sickinger writes, “Throughout the Society’s history, the circular letters have remained an important source of inspiration and instruction. They constituted a primary example of promoting transparency and solidarity within the fledgling Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.” Lallier’s other writings and addresses on social issues are summarized.
