So what are encyklija essential elements of Christian and ecclesial charity? Faced with new situations and issues, Catholic social teaching thus gradually developed, and has now found a benedykts presentation in the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church published in by the Pontifical Council Iustitia et Pax.

My heart recoils within me, my compassion grows warm and tender. Faith, which sees the love of God revealed in the pierced heart of Jesus on the Cross, gives rise to love. Our times call for a new readiness to assist our neighbours in need. Nowadays Christianity of the past is often criticized as having been opposed to the body; and it beenedykta quite true that tendencies of this sort have always existed.

Corresponding to the image of a monotheistic God is monogamous marriage.

A personal relationship with God and an abandonment to his will can prevent man from being demeaned and save him from falling prey to the teaching of fanaticism and terrorism. God’s way benerykta loving becomes the measure of human love. Whoever wants to eliminate love is preparing to eliminate man as such.

They constantly experience the gift of her goodness and the unfailing love which she pours out from the depths of her heart. Its aim is simply to beneedykta purify reason and to contribute, here and now, to the acknowledgment and attainment of what is just.

Building a just social and civil order, wherein each person receives what is his or her due, is an essential task which every generation must take up beneykta.

Should he aspire to be pure spirit and to reject the flesh as pertaining to his animal nature alone, then spirit and body would both lose their dignity.

As our preceding reflections have made clear, the true subject of the various Catholic organizations that carry out a ministry of charity is the Church herself—at all levels, from the parishes, through the particular Churches, to the universal Church.


Piety does not undermine the struggle against the poverty of our neighbours, however extreme. She knows that she will only contribute to the salvation of the world if, rather than carrying out beneydkta own projects, she places herself completely at the disposal of God’s initiatives. The apparent exaltation of the body can quickly turn into a hatred of bodiliness.

Yet the contemporary way of exalting the body is deceptive.

As the Church grew, this radical form of material communion could not in fact be preserved. For this reason, I wish in my first Encyclical to speak of the love which God lavishes upon us and which we in turn must share with others.

In the example of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta we have a clear illustration of the fact that time devoted to God in prayer not only does not detract from effective and loving service to our neighbour but is in fact the inexhaustible source of that service. So Encykli,a forms woman encyklikw the rib of man.

The one God in whom Israel believes, on the other hand, loves with a personal love. Works of charity—almsgiving—are in effect a way for the rich to shirk their obligation to work for justice and a means of soothing their consciences, while preserving their own status and robbing the poor of their rights. They need heartfelt concern.

Here I would clearly reaffirm what my great predecessor John Paul II wrote in his Encyclical Sollicitudo Rei Socialis [28] when he asserted the readiness of the Catholic Church to cooperate with the charitable agencies of these Churches and Communities, since we all have the same fundamental motivation and look towards the same goal: The rise of modern industry caused the old social structures to collapse, while the growth of a class of salaried workers provoked radical changes in the fabric of society.

The words addressed by the crucified Lord to xgi disciple—to John and through him to all disciples of Jesus: The Second Vatican Council had made this point very clearly: It is part of love’s growth towards higher levels and inward purification that it now seeks to become definitive, and it does so in a twofold sense: The problem is one of practical reason; but if reason is to be exercised properly, it must undergo constant purification, since it can never be completely free of the danger of a certain ethical blindness caused by encymlika dazzling effect of power and special interests.

Hope is practised through the virtue of patience, which continues to do good even in the face of apparent failure, and through the virtue of humility, which accepts God’s mystery and trusts him even at times of darkness.


And can love be commanded?

This duty is a grace. Sncyklika Christian faith was thus definitively discredited in his eyes. In the critique of Christianity which began with the Enlightenment and grew progressively more radical, this new element was seen as something thoroughly negative.

A Christian knows when it is time to speak of God and when it is better to say nothing and to let love alone speak.

Deus caritas est (December 25, ) | BENEDICT XVI

You abandoned yourself completely to God’s call benedymta thus became a wellspring of the goodness which flows forth from him. And we have also seen, synthetically, that biblical faith does not set up a parallel universe, or one opposed to that primordial human phenomenon which is love, but rather accepts the whole man; it intervenes beneykta his search for love in order to purify it and to reveal new dimensions of it.

Only if I serve my neighbour can my eyes be opened to what God does for me and how much he loves me. The Church cannot neglect the service of charity any more than she can neglect the Sacraments and the Word. Going beyond exterior appearances, I perceive in others an interior desire for a sign of love, of concern.

When the disciples flee, Mary will remain beneath the Cross cf. Finally, Mary is a woman who loves. Those responsible for the Church’s charitable activity Christ took the lowest place in the world—the Cross—and by this radical humility he redeemed us and constantly comes to our aid. We recognize that we are not acting on the basis of any superiority or greater personal efficiency, but because the Lord has graciously enabled us to do so.

Faith, hope and charity go together. In her letter for LentBlessed Teresa wrote to her lay co-workers: Man is truly himself when his body and soul are intimately united; the challenge of eros can be said to be truly overcome when this unification is achieved.

In this contemplation the Christian discovers the path along which his life and love ejcyklika move. By contemplating the pierced side of Christ cf. Jesus Christ — the incarnate love of God
