“There is no reason why the Church and the State should clash”

It is not true that there is opposition between being a good Catholic and serving civil society faithfully. In the same way there is no reason why the Church and the State should clash when they proceed with the lawful exercise of their respective authorities, in fulfillment of the mission God has entrusted to them.

"Sanctifying one's work is no fantastic dream, but the mission of every Christian - yours and mine.”
