HOLY FATHER, Pope FRANCIS, AMORIS LÆTITIA

Love is Shown More by Deeds Than by Words

Love inspires a sincere esteem for every human being and the recognition of his or her own right to happiness. I love this person, and I see him or her with the eyes of God, who gives us everything “for our enjoyment” (1 Tim 6:17). As a result, I feel a deep sense of happiness and peace. This same deeply
rooted love also leads me to reject the injustice whereby some possess too much and others too little. It moves me to find ways of helping society’s outcasts to find a modicum of joy. That is not envy, but the desire for equality.

“Love is Shown More by Deeds Than by Words”~Saint Ignatius of Loyola
