Everything Must Be Done 
For God's Glory - Not Our Own

"If in accomplishing a good deed
we do not have as our goal God's glory and the real well being of our brothers and sisters, looking rather for a return of personal interest or simply of applause, then we place ourselves outside the gospel vision.

Charity is a theological virtue 
that demands interior conversion to the love of God and neighbor in imitation of Jesus Christ, who, dying on a cross gave his entire self for us."
