The personnel of every Catholic charitable organization want to work with the Church and therefore with the Bishop, so that bebedykta love of God can spread throughout the world. Yet to become such a source, one must constantly drink anew from the original source, which is Jesus Christ, from whose pierced heart flows the love of God cf. There will always be loneliness.
Having reflected on the nature of love and its meaning in biblical faith, we are encykli,a with two questions concerning our own attitude: In the Catholic Church, and also in the other Churches and Ecclesial Communities, new forms of charitable activity have arisen, while other, older ones have taken on new life and energy. Starting from the depths of his own sacrifice and of the love that reaches fulfilment therein, he benevykta portrays in these words the essence of love and indeed of human life itself.
In order to define more accurately the relationship between the necessary commitment to justice and the ministry of charity, two fundamental situations need to be considered:.
This duty is a grace. This can only take place on the basis of an intimate encounter with God, an encounter which has become a communion of will, even affecting my feelings.
Pontificale Benedykt, De ordinatione episcopi My heart recoils within me, my compassion grows warm and tender. Jesus takes up this cry for help as a warning to help us return to the right path.
God does not demand of us a feeling which we ourselves are incapable of producing. The imagery of marriage between God and Israel is now realized in a way previously inconceivable: We can thus see how the reception of the Song of Songs in the canon of sacred Scripture was soon explained by the idea enyklika these love songs ultimately describe God’s relation to man and man’s relation to God.
The saints—consider the example of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta—constantly renewed their capacity for love of neighbour from their encounter with the Eucharistic Lord, and conversely this encounter acquired its real- ism and depth in their service to others. Love of God and love of neighbour Even though this Encyclical will deal primarily with the understanding and practice of love in sacred Scripture and in the Church’s Tradition, we cannot simply prescind from the meaning of the word in the different cultures and in present-day usage.
Consequently, the best defence of God and man consists precisely in love. Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? Indeed, God is visible in a number of ways. Here I would clearly reaffirm what my great predecessor John Paul II wrote in his Encyclical Sollicitudo Rei Socialis  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: It is not a means of changing the world ideologically, and it is not at the service of worldly stratagems, but encyklikka is a way of making present here and now the love which man always needs.

On the other hand—and here we see one of the challenging yet also positive sides of the process of globalization—we now have at our disposal numerous means for offering humanitarian assistance to our brothers and sisters in need, not least modern systems of distributing food and clothing, and of providing housing and care.
But it is also a purifying force for reason itself. The Christian faith was thus definitively discredited in his eyes. Here we need to consider yet another aspect: In other words, the social service which they were meant to provide was absolutely concrete, yet at the same time it was also a spiritual service; theirs was a truly spiritual office which carried out an essential responsibility of the Church, namely a well-ordered love of neighbour.
These words from the First Letter of John express with remarkable clarity the heart of the Christian faith: Certainly, as the Lord tells us, one can become a source from which rivers of living water flow cf.
Interior openness to the Catholic dimension of the Church cannot fail to dispose charity workers to work in harmony with other organizations in serving various forms of need, but in a way that respects what is distinctive about the service which Christ requested of his disciples. They realize that a pure and generous love is the best witness to the God in whom we believe and by whom we are driven to love.
The real novelty of the New Testament lies not so much in new ideas as in the figure of Christ himself, who gives flesh and blood to those concepts—an unprecedented realism.

Seeing with the eyes of Christ, I can give to others much more than their outward necessities; I can give them the look of love which they crave. All other powers in heaven and on earth thus appear secondary: Faced with new situations and issues, Catholic social teaching thus gradually developed, and has now found a comprehensive presentation in the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church published in by the Pontifical Council Iustitia et Pax.
Love grows through love. Naughton, Notre Dame, Ind.: It is also a result of the presence of Christianity in the world, since Christianity constantly revives and acts out this imperative, so often profoundly obscured in the course of time. How can we obtain it? At xxvi gates of Amiens, Martin gave half of his cloak to a poor man: God’s love for us is fundamental for our lives, and it raises important questions about who God is and who we are.
Nelson, Economics as Religion: Mary, Encykliika and Mother, shows us what love is and whence it draws its origin and its constantly renewed power. This illusion has vanished. Therefore I am terrified at his presence; when I consider, I am in dread of him. Seen in this way, charity is rejected and attacked as a means of preserving the status quo.
