Daily Eucharist Quote – Catechism of the Catholic Church

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Charity, furthermore, cannot be used as a means of engaging in what is nowadays considered proselytism. Love is free; it is not practiced as a way of achieving other ends.

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Part of Marxist strategy is the theory of impoverishment: in a situation of unjust power, it is claimed, anyone who engages in charitable initiatives is actually serving that unjust system, making it appear at least to some extent tolerable.

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Consequently, in addition to their necessary professional training, these charity workers need a 'formation of the heart': they need to be led to that encounter with God in Christ which awakens their love and opens their spirits to others.
