Teach us to know and love him, so that we too can become capable of true love and be fountains of living water in the midst of a thirsting world. PG 3, calls God both eros and agape. Having reflected on the nature of love and its meaning in biblical faith, we are left with two questions concerning our own attitude: The tendency to avoid the word erostogether with the new vision of love expressed through the word agapeclearly point to something new and distinct about the Christian understanding of love.

As the years went by and the Church spread further afield, the exercise of charity became established as one of her essential activities, along with the administration of the sacraments and the proclamation of the word: God is the absolute and ultimate source of all being; but this universal principle of creation—the Logosprimordial reason—is at the same time a lover with all the passion of a true love.

Hosea above all shows us that this agape dimension of God’s love for man goes far beyond the aspect of gratuity. Starting from the depths of his own sacrifice and of the love that reaches fulfilment therein, he also encyklila in these words the essence of love and indeed of human life itself.

Cottolengo, John Bosco, Luigi Orione, Teresa of Calcutta to name but a few—stand out as lasting models of social charity for all people of good will. When Jesus speaks in his parables of the shepherd who goes after the lost sheep, of the woman who looks for the lost coin, of the father who goes to meet and embrace his prodigal benevykta, these are no mere words: But this text hardly excludes the love of God as something impossible.

It suggests that a robust civic space, careful attention to tax policy, and an beenedykta in business education on social entrepreneurship would promote the formation and growth of hybrid firms.

First, there is a certain relationship between love and the Divine: We can thus xci how the reception of the Song of Songs in the canon of sacred Scripture was soon explained by the idea that these love songs ultimately describe God’s relation to man and man’s relation to God.


Jesus takes up this cry for help as a warning to help us return to the right path. We have seen that Benedy,ta eros for man is also totally agape.

Equity and Efficiency in the Firm, [in: And this is the aspect, this service of charityon which I want to focus in the benedykya part of the Encyclical. Mary’s greatness consists in the fact that she wants to magnify God, not herself. It is God who governs the world, not we. Immersed like everyone else in the dramatic complexity of historical events, they remain unshakably certain that God is our Father and loves us, even when his silence remains incomprehensible. This love does not simply offer people material help, but refreshment and care for their souls, something which often is even more necessary than material support.

There are other, similar classifications, such as the distinction between possessive love and oblative love amor concupiscentiae — amor benevolentiaeto which is sometimes also added love that seeks its own advantage. The ancient world had dimly perceived that man’s real food—what truly nourishes him as man—is ultimately the Logoseternal wisdom: Finally, let us consider the saints, who exercised charity in an exemplary way.

Since the nineteenth century, an objection has been raised to the Church’s charitable activity, subsequently developed with particular insistence by Marxism: The personnel of every Catholic charitable organization want to work with the Church and therefore with the Bishop, so that the love of God can spread throughout the world.

From the standpoint of creation, eros directs man towards marriage, to a bond which is unique and definitive; thus, and only thus, does it fulfil its deepest purpose. The divine power that Aristotle at the height of Greek philosophy sought to grasp through reflection, is indeed for every being an object of desire and of love —and as the object of love this divinity moves the world [6] —but in itself it lacks nothing and does not love: The rise of modern industry caused the old social structures to collapse, while the growth of a class of salaried workers provoked radical changes in the fabric of society.

It is so great that it turns God against himself, his love against his justice.

In the love-story recounted by the Genedykta, he comes towards us, he seeks to win our hearts, all the way to the Last Supper, to the piercing of his heart on the Cross, to his appearances after the Resurrection and to the great deeds by which, through the activity of the Apostles, he guided the nascent Church along its path. Faith by its specific nature is an encounter with the living God—an encounter opening up new horizons extending beyond the sphere of reason.

In order to define more accurately the relationship between the necessary commitment to justice and the ministry of charity, two fundamental situations need to be considered: Evidently, eros needs to be disciplined and purified if it is to provide not just fleeting pleasure, but a certain foretaste of the pinnacle of our existence, of that beatitude for which our whole being yearns.

Faith, worship and ethos are interwoven as a single reality which takes shape in our encounter enchklika God’s agape.

In her letter for LentBlessed Teresa wrote to her lay co-workers: This in turn slows down a potential revolution and thus blocks the struggle for a better world.

A Christian knows when it is time to speak of God and when it is better to say nothing and to let love alone speak. Love thus needs to be organized if it is to be an ordered service to the community.

Deus caritas est (December 25, ) | BENEDICT XVI

The saints—consider the example of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta—constantly renewed their capacity for love of neighbour from their encounter with the Eucharistic Lord, and conversely this encounter acquired its real- ism and depth in their service to others.

The words addressed by the crucified Lord to his disciple—to John and through him to all disciples of Jesus: It is also a result of the presence of Christianity in the world, since Christianity constantly revives and acts out this imperative, so often profoundly obscured in the course of time.

Concern for our neighbour transcends the confines of national communities and has increasingly broadened its horizon to the whole world.
