"Peter’s Pence" is the most typical expression of the participation of all the faithful in the Bishop of Rome's projects of good for the universal Church

"Peter’s Pence" is the most typical expression of the participation of all the faithful in the Bishop of Rome's projects of good for the universal Church. The collection is a gesture that not only has practical value but is also highly symbolic as a sign of communion with the Pope and attention to the needs of the brethren.

(Address to the Members of the Circle of St. Peter, 25 February 2006)

The heart sees where love is needed and acts accordingly

It is very important that the Church's charitable activity maintains all of its splendour and does not become just another form of social assistance. [...] The Christian's programme —the programme of the Good Samaritan, the programme of Jesus—is “a heart which sees”. This heart sees where love is needed and acts accordingly.

(Encyclical Letter Deus caritas est, December 25, 2005)

There will never be a situation where the charity of each individual Christian is unnecessary, because man needs, and will always need, love

The Church can never be exempted from practising charity as an organized activity of believers, and on the other hand, there will never be a situation where the charity of each individual Christian is unnecessary, because in addition to justice man needs, and will always need, love.

(Encyclical Letter Deus caritas est, December 25, 2005)

A LITTLE OR A LOT, IT IS ALL WELCOME.
GIVING IS A GIFT
