R053 - Hanging crucifixes on the walls

(Read the browseable version)

Dear Father,

It is true that the Gospel commands us not to play the trumpet………when we do good works (Mt 6:2). It is equally true, however, that good works must be seen by men as a witness “to the Father who is in heaven” (Mt 5:16).

I am thinking of the many works of Christian charity, hospitals, canteens, etc… they do not say, out of false modesty, why they do it. And this creates misunderstandings that will be difficult to remove.
