“You cannot achieve that self-containment of being, which is your excellence, if you live in a dependency on others for the fulfillment of your being. God alone can fully answer your need for love, and for that, He asks for your love. He also asks that we love others for His sake. If we love them for ourselves, we try to possess them and make use of them. What is needed instead is to strive for a wholeness of personhood ourselves and to help others to that same fullness of being.”
~Excerpt from Genevieve Kineke’s “The Authentic Catholic Woman”
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO OUR READERS
Catholic Exchange is free—but it is not free to produce. Advertising revenue covers only a fraction of the cost to generate reliably Catholic commentary and news, inspiring videos, a selection of the best Catholic blogs, and daily meditations and prayers.
To give us the strength and stability we need, Catholic Exchange is turning to you—our loyal reader—and asking you to become a monthly contributor.
Whether you can give $5 or $25, $50 or $100 each month, please leave something behind so we can continue—and strengthen—this important apostolate.
We are deeply grateful for one-time gifts, but we encourage you to choose “Monthly” on the drop-down menu. Your support will ensure that Catholic Exchange will be here during this most critical moment for the Church and America.
