After Vincent de Paul finished his studies in theology, he was ordained a priest in 1600. While working in different places, a change takes place in him after his encounters with the poorest of the poor. Under the influence of the future Cardinal de Berulle --- and because of crises in his own life --- Vincent de Paul gives up his privileged position as a private tutor with an aristocratic family and begins to look after the poor and sick. He also takes a job as a simple priest in a parish in an area of France particularly struggling with the plague. Louise de Marillac, a widow with a big heart, is so moved by his example, that she follows in his footsteps.
