The entire enxyklika of the Church is an expression of a love that seeks the integral good of man: This has always been emphasized by Christian teaching on the State and by the Church’s social doctrine. The second part is more concrete, since it treats the ecclesial exercise of the commandment of love of neighbour.
Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction. 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. First, there is a certain relationship between love and the Divine: The awareness of this responsibility has had a constitutive relevance in the Church from the beginning: Here we find a specific reference—as we have seen—to the fertility cults and their abuse of erosbut also a description of the relationship of fidelity between Israel and her God.
Two facts are significant about this statement: Hope is practised through the virtue of patience, which continues to do good even in the face of apparent failure, and through the virtue of humility, which accepts God’s mystery and trusts him even at times of darkness.

Mary is a woman of faith: Consequently, more than anything, they must be persons moved by Christ’s love, persons whose hearts Christ has conquered with his love, awakening within them a love of neighbour.
With regard to the personnel who carry out the Church’s charitable activity on the practical level, the essential has already been said: The Church cannot and must not take upon herself the political battle to bring about the most just society possible. His friend is my friend.

Anyone who needs me, and encykliks I can help, is my neighbour. Certainly Job could complain before God about the presence of incomprehensible and apparently unjustified suffering in the world. Nor has the Lord been absent from subsequent Church history: Despite the great advances made in science and technology, each day we see how much suffering there is in the world on account of different kinds of poverty, both material and spiritual.
They needed now to be imitated and outdone. Sncyklika heart sees ency,lika love is needed and acts accordingly. The lives of the saints are not limited to their earthly biographies but also include their being and working in God after death.
This article categorizes possible types of such hybrid firms and explores the institutions necessary for promoting them.

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: Purification and growth in maturity are called for; and these also pass through the path of renunciation. The Church cannot neglect the service of charity any more than she can neglect the Sacraments and the Word.
As a community, the Church must practise love.
Without in any way detracting from this commandment of encylika love, the Church also has a specific responsibility: A Eucharist which does not pass over into the concrete practice of love is intrinsically fragmented.
