"Charity gave me the key to my vocation. I understood that the Church had a Heart and that this Heart was burning with love. I understood that Love comprised all vocations, that Love was everything, that it embraced all times and a word, that it was eternal! My vocation, at last I have found it...My vocation is Love!"

Seek ye first

Whereas material goods, the more they are sought for their own sake, tend to cause disunion among men, spiritual goods unite men more closely in proportion as they are more greatly loved. This principle helps us to appreciate how necessary is the interior life; and, incidentally, it virtually contains the solution of the social question and of the economic crisis which afflicts the world today. The Gospel puts it very simply: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. “ If the world today is on its death-bed, it is because it has lost sight of a fundamental truth which for every Christian is elementary.
--Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange
