Saint Christopher's Home, Sea Cliff, New York, a Home for Dependent Pre-School Children: 1947-1952
The Catholic Church, founded on the teaching of Jesus Christ, is based on the love of God and His creatures, Our Lord, in His parable of the Good Samaritan, instructed the faithful to love their neighbors as themselves and to consider all men as their neighbors. The faithful have not only the privilege, but the obligation to help the needy. They are bound in justice to defend and protect all humanity in danger from others or social conditions against which they are helpless. They are stimulated by charity to help the needy, to protect their physical and spiritual integrity, for the love of God. To help the needy is to serve Christ and the needy are served because of Christ. All activity for the care of p the needy is spiritual in matter and form. The Catholic Church has therefore always been interested and active in the care of neglected and dependent children, children of God deprived of their birth-right to a home of their own and all its educational facilities.
