Catholic Social Services
Doing the common good for everyone means that certain individual sacrifices must be made for the betterment of society. That was one of the messages Fr. Kris Schmidt presented during his June Sophia Talk.
“To get down from our mount, and out from behind our professionalism, and being exposed to real risk – this is what characterizes the work of true social justice. Not disposal sympathy or left over generosity, but real compassion.”
“I like to say that contemplation is the very act of Faith. It’s the way we come to Faith that leads us into the temple and the centre of our being."
“The dignity of work comes from people being able to express who they are in making things.”
Our most recent Sophia Talks discussed the origin of the word “catholic” and the public perception of the Catholic Church being a closed-minded institution.
