Caritas St. Petersburg

"Caritas" – translated from Latin - means "Charity, Christian love." Christian charity requires not only personal participation, following the call of your heart, but it is also a social, properly planned and organized activity.

Personnel

This man was considered a good Christian. He has never ceased to pray. He prayed in the morning and in the evening. And of course in the night, too. We can say that this man was a "spiritual" person because he thought a lot about God and constantly read the Bible. In addition, he always participated in the Sunday service and assisted in the parish. The only thing he could not understand why there are so much poverty and misery in the world. He could not get it how God, who is so good and almighty, could create such an imperfect world full of injustice, wars, lies, diseases, and.... poor people.
