The Supreme Charity

              For there is a force which can be distributed to all, always,
           provided that it is given in its most impersonal form: this is
           love, love which contains within itself light and life, that is, all
           the possibilities of intelligence, health, blossoming.
              Yes, there is a sublime charity, one which rises from a hap-
           py heart, from a serene soul.
              One who has won inner peace is a herald of deliverance
           wherever he goes, a bearer of hope and joy. Is not this what
           poor and suffering humanity needs above all things?
              Yes, there are certain men whose thoughts are all love, who
           radiate love, and the mere presence of these individuals is a
           charity more active, more real than any other.
              Though they utter no word and make no gesture, yet the
           sick are relieved, the tormented are soothed, the ignorant are
           enlightened, the wicked are appeased, those who suffer are
           consoled and all undergo this deep transformation which will
           open new horizons to them, enable them to take a step forward
           which no doubt will be decisive, on the infinite path of progress.
              These individuals who, out of love, give themselves to all, who
           become the servants of all, are the living symbols of the supreme
             I invite all of you here, my brothers, who aspire to be chari-
           table, to join your thought with mine in expressing this wish:
           that we may strive to follow their example a little more each
           day so that we may be like them, in the world, messengers of
           light and love.
