Pope Benedict warns volunteers not to let their work become mere activism

Feb 10, 2007 - 04:34 pm .- This morning Pope Benedict XVI received, in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall, members of the National Italian Confederation of the "Misericordias."  The Holy Father thanked those gathered for their concrete expressions of love but warned them not to let their volunteer activities become mere activism. “With your presence and your action, you contribute to the spreading of God’s Gospel of love for all mankind,” the Pontiff said at the beginning of his discourse.
