Cardinal Sarah's reflections on Christian Charity

                                                   Cardinal Sarah

Cardinal Sarah quotes Blessed Frederic Ozanam, founder of the St. Vincent de Paul Society:

“Our fundamental purpose is not to go out and help the poor,” said Ozanam, whose organization is well-known for its service to the needy. “For us, this has only been a means. Our purpose is to maintain the Catholic faith within us, and to allow its diffusion to others through the instrument of charity.”
