As self-interest and a dominating spirit try to get the upper hand in today’s world, here’s some simple quotes to ponder. We’re spotlighting the word “charity” from our name – Corps of Renewal and Charity. Got a favorite quote in this vein? Feel free to share it in the comments section.
2 Corinthians 9:7
So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver.
This is a time to bear with each other, to lift each other up in mutual charity. The last thing we need is to complain that things are not how we would prefer or not how we would do them when a leader of ours is trying to find his way.
St. Teresa of Calcutta
Never worry about the numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.
The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
Pope St. Pius X
The primary duty of charity does not lie in the toleration of false ideas.
St.Therese of Lisieux
I know now that true charity consists in bearing all our neighbors’ defects – not being surprised at their weakness, but edified at their smallest virtues.
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!
“Love is something more stern and splendid than mere kindness.” – C.S. Lewis
