Journeying with the Founder Day #319

There are profound ties between evangelization and human advancement; however, it would be wrong to reduce the freedom promoted by the Church to purely temporal dimensions. The liberation proclaimed by evangelization must aim at the whole man, and it cannot substitute the announcement of the kingdom for the proclamation of human freedom. It is important and urgent to build more humane structures, but all this would serve little if there is not conversion of heart. Moreover, the Church cannot accept a liberation that comes from violence. (The Revolution of the Samaritans)
