Quote of the Day (John Henry Cardinal Newman, on ‘Faith Without Charity’)

“Faith without charity is dry, harsh, and sapless; it has nothing sweet, engaging, winning, soothing; but it was charity which brought Christ down. Charity is but another name for the Comforter. It is eternal Charity which is the bond of all things in heaven and earth; it is Charity wherein the Father and the Son are one in the unity of the Spirit; by which the Angels in heaven are one, by which all Saints are one with God, by which the Church is one upon earth.” —John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890), A Newman Treasury: Selections from the Prose Works of John Henry Cardinal Newman, edited by Charles Frederick Harrold (1943)
