Who can express the bond of the charity of God? Who can express the splendor of its beauty?
St. Clement I, Letter to the Corinthians. fl. 96
And they should beware, not to grow angry and become upset on account of the sin of another, since anger and upsetness impede charity in themselves and in others.
Pope Honorius III, ‘Solet Annuere,’
Christ Himself, whose works are perfect, in His acts walked the way of perfection, because sometimes condescending to the imperfections of the infirm yet He would [still] extol the way of perfection, and He would not damn the infirm paths of the imperfect.
Pope Nicholas III, ‘Exiit Qui Seminat’, August 14, 1279 A.D.
On Sundays too, or other days if necessary, you should discuss matters of discipline and your spiritual welfare; and on this occasion the indiscretions and failings of the brothers, if any be found at fault, should be lovingly corrected.
Pope Innocent IV, ‘Quae Honorem Conditoris Omnium’
