Charity urges us… “The mission of charity is urgent. Benedict XVI states: It is Christ’s charity that drives us on: “caritas Christi urget nos” (2 Corinthians 5:14). The urgency is inscribed not only in things, it is not derived solely from the rapid succession of events and problems, but also from the very matter that is at stake: the establishment of authentic fraternity. The importance of this goal is such as to demand our openness to understand it in depth and to mobilize ourselves at the level of the “heart”, so as to ensure that current economic and social processes evolve towards fully human outcomes (Benedict XVI, Caritas in veritate, #20).
