The true treasure is the love of God shared with our brethren

Dear brothers and sisters, the true treasure is the love of God shared with our brethren. That love which comes from God and enables us to share it with one another and to help each other.

(Angelus, 4 August 2013)

Only when we are able to share do we become truly rich; everything that is shared is multiplied!

Only when we are able to share do we become truly rich; everything that is shared is multiplied! Think of the multiplication of the loaves by Jesus! The measure of the greatness of a society is found in the way it treats those most in need, those who have nothing apart from their poverty!

May prayer and action always be deeply united

In our Christian life too, dear brothers and sisters, may prayer and action always be deeply united. A prayer that does not lead you to practical action for your brother — the poor, the sick, those in need of help, a brother in difficulty — is a sterile and incomplete prayer.

(Angelus, 21 July 2013)

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