Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga: Called to Serve One Another by Love

“The love of a Christian is not only a sentiment, no, it is the main reason for our lives. We live for faith, we live for love, we live for those who are suffering. The love of the heart can go beyond any and all borders to serve the poor. 

We are all called to serve one another by love.. The proof of our faith is our love for others. To take care of [the poor] in the amount that you do – is only through the biggest love, beyond the boundaries of your own heart.”. -Cardinal Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga, archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and president of Caritas Internationalis.  

(Reflections from a Mass for Food for the Poor in Miami in 2009)
