Gratitude, Confidence, and Love Make for Perfect Charity: Family Reflection Video

Return to the Church

All you need is gratitude, confidence in God, and Love.

There are many remarkable people inspired by the powers of gratitude, confidence and love. Rightly so, because these things can change lives around the world. Catholics must strive to revive these virtues and shall have the special help of Our Lord.

These three virtues allow a person to live as a child of God and be open to hear his voice as well as to heed it; to become tranquil and generous in responding to all the promptings and wishes of the Living God.

How have I been thankful, confident, and generous lately? How can I continue to be?

Let us pray for perfect charity around the world- charity that embraces all our lives with nothing and no one beyond its concern or reach.
