It is the theological virtue by which we love God above all things for his own sake, and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church beautifully quotes St. Paul: “If I.. have not charity, I am nothing” Whatever privilege, service, or even virtue one has, “If I… have not charity, I gain nothing.” Charity is superior to all the virtues. It is the first of the theological virtues. “So faith, hope and charity abide, these three. But the greatest of these is charity”.

We reflect on how Mother Francisca lived this virtue in her time so as to be emulated today.
