Liturgical Season: Ordinary Time
It All Goes Back to Love
“Charity is at the heart of the Church’s social doctrine”.
Saint Benedict XVI
The Catholic Church has many documents which address the area of social justice. At the heart of all social justice teaching is love of God and love of neighbour. They can’t be separated. The love of God is the beginning and end of our service to others. When we take God and love out of the equation we become social workers and not disciples.
Prayer: Jesus, let my love for you motivate me to serve the most forgotten and unloved. Amen.
