One cannot go to God without going through the brothers.
(Unpublished notes of Pope Montini, Famiglia Cristiana, No. 32, 6 August 1997)
The hungry nations of the world cry out to the peoples blessed with abundance. And the Church, cut to the quick by this cry, asks each and every man to hear his brother's plea and answer it lovingly.
(Encyclical letter Populorum Progressio, March 26, 1967)
No one may appropriate surplus goods solely for his own private use when others lack the bare necessities of life.
