True charity

“Whoever possesses true charity in his heart cannot but serve Christ. Even those who think they hate him have consecrated their lives to him: for Jesus is found disguised and masked amidst humans, hidden among the poor, the sick, prisoners, and strangers.”

So wrote François Mauriac, a French Catholic novelist, who died on September 1, 1970.
