Maria Skobtsova of Paris: “Christian love”

8 December 2015

St-Maria-Skobtsova-or-Paris

“Man ought to treat the body of his fellow human being with more care than he treats his own. Christian love teaches us to give our fellows material as well as spiritual gifts. We should give them our last shirt and our last piece of bread. Personal almsgiving and the most far reaching social work are both equally justified and needed.”

–  St Maria Skobtsova of Paris
