Back to Charity vs. Justice

Charity will never be true charity unless it takes justice into account … Let no one attempt with small gifts of charity to exempt themselves from the great duties imposed by justice.

– Pope Pius XI, Divini Redemptori (On Atheistic Communism #49)

A few of my earlier “micro-posts” that set out my belief that in the legal system vis a vis pro bono publico, charity is often confused with justice. To these, I add a thoughtful article from, “Justice and the Limits of Charity”.
