doctrine tells us that the primary duty of charity does not lie in the
toleration of false ideas, however sincere they may be; nor in theoretical or
practical indifference toward the errors and vices in which we see our brethren
plunged, but in the zeal for their intellectual and moral improvement as well as
for their material well-being. Catholic doctrine further tells us that love for
our neighbor flows from our love for God, Who is Father to all, and the goal of
the human family; and in Jesus Christ whose members we are, to the point that in
doing good to others we are doing good to Jesus Christ Himself. Any other kind
of love is sheer illusion, sterile and fleeting." (Pope St. Pius X, "Notre
Charge Apostolique", 1910 A.D.)

oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it." (Pope
St. Felix III)
