This encykli,a is the starting-point for understanding the great parables of Jesus. Obviously when charitable activity is carried out by the Church as a communitarian initiative, the spontaneity of individuals must be combined with planning, foresight and cooperation with other similar institutions.
As citizens of the State, they are called to take part in public life in a personal capacity.

Faced with new situations and issues, Catholic social teaching thus gradually developed, and has now found a comprehensive presentation in the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church published in by the Pontifical Council Iustitia et Pax.
All other powers in heaven and on earth thus appear secondary: God’s way of loving becomes the measure of human love.
The testimonials of gratitude, offered to her from every continent and culture, are a recognition of that pure love which is not self- seeking but simply benevolent.
The love-story between God and man consists in the very fact that this communion of will increases in a communion of thought and sentiment, and thus our will and God’s will increasingly coincide: When the disciples flee, Mary will remain beneath the Cross cf.
Two things emerge clearly from this rapid overview of the concept of eros past and present. So God forms woman from the rib of man.
As a believer who in faith thinks with God’s thoughts and wills with God’s will, she cannot fail to be a woman who loves. A particularly striking interpretation of this vision is presented by Pope Gregory the Great in his Pastoral Rule. In the saints one thing becomes clear: Guitian, Integral Subsidiarity and Econoyj of Communion: The imagery of marriage between God and Israel is now realized in a way previously inconceivable: As a child of six years, Julian witnessed the assassination of his father, brother and other family members by the guards of the imperial palace; rightly or wrongly, he blamed this brutal act on the Emperor Constantius, who passed himself off as an outstanding Christian.
Here we need to consider yet another aspect: In today’s complex situation, not least because of the growth of a globalized economy, the Church’s social doctrine has become a set of fundamental guidelines offering approaches that are valid even beyond the confines of the Church: We can thus understand how agape also became a term for the Eucharist: God loved us first, says the Letter of John quoted above cf.
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. A personal relationship with God and an abandonment to his will can prevent man from being demeaned and save him from falling prey to the teaching of fanaticism and terrorism. Faith, worship and ethos are interwoven as a single reality which takes shape in our encounter with God’s agape.
Thus the Song of Songs became, both in Christian and Jewish literature, a source of mystical knowledge and experience, an expression of the essence of biblical faith: In one of his letters,  he wrote that the sole aspect of Christianity which had impressed him was the Church’s charitable activity. That, in essence, is what the two main parts of this Letter are about, and they are profoundly interconnected. Yet we have also seen that the way to attain this goal is not simply by submitting to instinct.
By their sharing in the Church’s practice of love, they wish to be witnesses of God and of Christ, and they wish for this very reason freely to do good to all. The philosophical dimension to be noted in this biblical vision, and its importance from the standpoint of the history of religions, lies in the fact that on the one hand we find ourselves before a strictly metaphysical image of God: Jesus himself, that night, appeared to him in a dream wearing that cloak, confirming the permanent validity of the Gospel saying: This illusion has vanished.
Jesus takes up this cry for help as a warning to help us return to the right path. There will always be loneliness.
In a world where the name of God is sometimes associated with vengeance or even a duty of hatred and violence, this message is both timely and significant.
He cannot always give, he must also receive. More significantly, though, we questioned whether the message of love proclaimed to us beedykta the Bible and the Church’s Tradition has some points of contact with the common human experience of love, or whether it is opposed to that experience.
Since the nineteenth century, an objection has been raised to the Church’s charitable activity, subsequently developed with particular insistence by Marxism: Certainly, the notion of creation is found elsewhere, yet only here xbi it become absolutely clear that it is not one god among many, but the one true God himself who is the source encykljka all that exists; the whole world comes into existence by the power of his creative Word.
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: Here we see how completely at home Mary is with the Word of God, with ease she moves in and out of it. I wish to emphasize some basic elements, so as to call forth in the world renewed energy and commitment in the human response to God’s 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. Love embraces the whole of existence in each of its dimensions, including the dimension of time. A just society must be the achievement of politics, not of the Church. Faith tells us that God has given his Son for our sakes and gives us the victorious certainty that it is really true: According to Friedrich Nietzsche, Christianity had poisoned eroswhich for its part, while not completely succumbing, gradually degenerated into vice.

For the Church, charity is not a kind of welfare activity which could equally well be left to others, but is a part of her nature, an wncyklika expression of her very being. The lives of the saints are not limited to their earthly biographies but also include their being and working in God after death. Consequently, the best defence of God and man consists precisely in love. In the development of biblical faith, however, the content of the prayer fundamental to Israel, the Shemabecame increasingly clear and unequivocal: We offer him our service only to the extent that we can, and for as long as he grants us the strength.
Doesn’t she blow the whistle just when bbenedykta joy which is the Creator’s gift offers us a happiness which is itself a certain foretaste of beneeykta Divine?
