Eugene concludes his letter to the Bishop of Grenoble by telling him that he would be sending Father Vincens to join the new Oblate community at Notre Dame de l’Osier.
The man that I am assigning to increase the little family is excellent in every respect. I am making a great sacrifice by sending him to that community, for I was counting on giving him as Superior of the house that we have in the Canton of Fribourg. He preaches like a true apostle, that means very well, without pretension and with results. He is kind, agreeable and regular, he will be a treasure for the house of l’Osier.
Letter to Bishop Philibert de Bruillard of Grenoble, 18 August 1834, EO XIII n 82
It is good to recall this calibre of Oblate missionary, reminding us with gratitude of many others we have known.
