Report of the Activities of St. Joseph Outreach
“Faith without charity bears no fruit, while charity without faith would be a sentiment constantly at the merry of doubt. Faith and charity each require the other, in such a way that each allows the other to set out along its respective path. Indeed, many Christians dedicate their lives with love to those who are lonely, marginalized or excluded, as to those who are the first with a claim on our attention and the most important for us to support, because it is in them that the reflection of Christ’s own face is seen. Through faith, we can recognize the face of the risen Lord in those who ask for our love.” (Porta Fidei, 14b).
