Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Friendship with God

“The act of charity is not, in fact, simply almsgiving to ease one’s conscience. It includes a ‘loving attentiveness towards the other’ (cf. Evangelii Gaudium, 199), which considers the other as ‘one with himself’ (cf. Saint Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, II-II, q. 27, art. 2), and desires to share friendship with God. Charity, therefore, is at the centre of the life of the Church and, in the words of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, is truly the heart of the Church.” — Pope Francis

Reflection:   

What usually motivates you to do an act of charity? Would this change if you thought of each person who would receive your charity as a potential friend through God?
