 “Catholic doctrine teaches us that the first duty of charity is not in the tolerance of erroneous convictions, however sincere, nor in the theoretical or practical indifference to error or vice in which we see our brothers plunged, but in jealousy for his intellectual and moral improvement, no less than in jealousy for his 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 goal of the whole 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.” 

 Encyclical Letter Notre Charge Apostolique, Pope Pius X.
