Charity, writes Fr. Elizondo, is love in action. Love is recognizing that we are all images and likenesses of God, and what we do unto each other we truly do unto ourselves. Charity is allowing the life of God to work through our ordinary, and sometimes extraordinary, deeds and words of daily life because God is love! (1 John 4: 17). Charity is each of us, all of us, manifesting God in the world. What could be more beautiful than that!
