Charitable Works and Social Justice

There are two different, but complimentary, ways that we can walk the path of love, or caritas. We call these the “Two Feet of Love in Action,” based on Pope Benedict XVI’s reflections in Deus Caritas Est (God is Love) and Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth).

The PDFs below invite users to further explore the two distinct, but complementary, ways that we can put love in action: Charitable Works and Social Justice.
