Evangelii Gaudium

Ch 1 The Church's Missionary Transformation

Part 3 From The Heart of The Gospel

37. Saint Thomas Aquinas taught that the Church's moral teaching has its own "heirarchy", in the virtues and in the acts which proceed from them.

39. What counts above all else is "faith working through love (Gal 5:6). Works of love directed to one's neighbour are the most perfect external manifestation of the interior grace of the Spirt: "The foundation of the New Law is in the grace of the Holy Spirit, who is manifested in the faith which works through love".

40. Thomas thus explains that, as far as external works are concerned, mercy is the greatest of all the virtues: "In itself mercy is the greatest of all the virtues, since all the others revolve around it and, more than this, it makes up for their deficiences. This is particular to the superior virtue, and as such is it proper to God to have mercy, through which his omnipotence is manifested to the greatest degree".
