This broadens enormously the horizons of the parenthood of Christian families: these and many other urgent needs of our time are a challenge to their spiritually fruitful love. In the first book of the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle warns us that the study of ethics is imprecise.

Let it be said at the outset that this is not an argument for the church to be hermetically sealed off from the world, for thai would be a betrayal of its mission, But neither should we be Led unthinkingly to believe that the mere acknow- ledgment of the importance of values and virtues, nor any amount of head-nodding or hand-wringing, is in fact sufficient to make the church or its families Virtuous."

The Church exists to be the carrier of the gospel in a fellowship of Christians. In the Middle Ages, generosity was also a commitment of the noble master, which referred to all those, who were related to him with voluntary inferiority — especially the followers and the vassals 10. 10The extension of the masters’ generosity to the poor, as it happened under Christian influence, definitely resulted from the Lord’s word: « Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me » (Mt 25, 40).

First to England came the Celts, then the Romans, and then the Anglo Saxons. Now here is the interesting thing: except for "justice", a word used by the courts in a sense very different from the biblical usage, where it really means "righteousness", there is no overlap between Christian virtues and what the Canadian Courts have identified as Charter values.
