Only if I serve my neighbour can my eyes be opened to what God does for me and how vxi he loves me. Even less is it an attempt to impose on those who do not share the faith ways of thinking and modes of conduct proper to faith.

Sulpicius Severus, Vita Sancti Martini3, Only my readiness to encounter my neighbour and to show him love makes me sensitive to God as well. For the Church, charity is not a kind of welfare activity which could equally well be left to others, but is a part of her nature, an indispensable expression of her very being.

She has to play her part through rational argument and she has to reawaken the spiritual energy without which justice, which always demands sacrifice, cannot prevail and prosper. First there is the word dodima plural form suggesting a love that is still insecure, indeterminate and searching. To do all we can with what strength we have, however, is the task which keeps the good servant of Jesus Christ always at work: AAS 87 The Church’s social teaching argues on the basis of reason and natural law, namely, on the basis of what is in accord with the nature of every human being.

AAS 81 The Second Vatican Council had made this point very clearly: Let us note straight away that the Greek Old Testament uses the word eros only twice, while the New Testament does not use it at all: 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.

In today’s complex situation, not least because of the growth of a globalized economy, the Church’s social doctrine has become a set of fundamental guidelines offering approaches that are valid even beyond the confines of the Church: It is time to reaffirm the importance of prayer in the face of the activism and the growing secularism of many Christians engaged in charitable work.

A Eucharist which does not pass over into the concrete practice of love is intrinsically fragmented. Anyone who wishes to give love must also receive love as a gift.

Eros is thus benedyjta ennobled, yet at the same time it is so purified as to become one with agape. Church agencies, with their transparent operation and their faithfulness to the duty of witnessing to love, are able to give a Christian quality to the civil agencies too, favouring a mutual coordination that can only redound to the effectiveness of charitable service.

First, the world of the Bible presents us with a new image of God. We have come to believe in God’s love: There will always be suffering which cries out for consolation benedyjta help.

Those who are in a position to help others will realize that in doing so they themselves receive help; being able to help enncyklika is no merit or achievement of their own. Thus the Song of Songs became, both in Christian and Jewish literature, a source of mystical knowledge and experience, an expression of the essence of biblical faith: The rise of modern industry caused the old social structures to collapse, while the growth of a class of salaried xvii provoked radical changes in the fabric of society.

Marxism had seen world revolution and its preliminaries as the panacea for the social problem: It is from there that our definition of love must begin.

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. In one of his letters, [16] he wrote that the sole aspect of Christianity which had impressed him was the Church’s charitable activity.

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: Since the nineteenth century, an objection has been raised to the Church’s charitable activity, subsequently developed with particular insistence by Marxism: Here one might detect hints of ideas that are also found, for example, in the myth mentioned by Plato, according to which man was originally spherical, because he was complete in himself and self-sufficient.

The saints are the true bearers of light within history, for they are men and women of faith, hope and love. A few references will suffice to demonstrate this. We see it in the humility with which she recedes into the background during Jesus’ public life, knowing that the Son must establish a new family and that the Mother’s hour will come only with the Cross, which will be Jesus’ true hour cf.

Two things emerge clearly from this rapid overview of the concept of eros past and present. Love of neighbour is thus shown to be possible in the way proclaimed by the Bible, by Jesus.

PG 3, calls God both eros and agape.

Here politics and faith meet. It recognizes that it is not the Church’s responsibility to make this teaching prevail in political life. In other words, the social service which they were benedyykta 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.
