Excerpt from Pope Leo XIII: His Life and Letters, From Recent and Authentic Sources; Together With Useful, Instructive, and Entertaining Information Required by All Roman Catholic People Throughout the World
The mission of the Catholic Church is to save souls. To realize this mission, she seeks to win, to warn, and to instruct them, by a thousand different methods: by the preaching and the writing of the word of God; by prayer, sacrifice, example; by the labors of her schools, colleges, universities, her priesthood, religious orders, her lay confraternities. She recognizes that the four pillars of national no less than individual greatness rest upon religion, education, labor, and the union of them all. To develop, then, the truths of religion, to advance the work of education, to bless labor in its more exalted or humbler forms, to strengthen by all these means the bonds of universal brotherhood in guiding us all heavenwards, - such is her constant, untiring aim and work. It was the mission and spirit of her Divine Founder. It must necessarily be her spirit and mission also. She thus seeks to place mankind in the proper relationship with one another. She seeks thus to place society on its true basis, by teaching men and women the true doctrine of mutual social responsibility; seeking not "the greatest good of the greatest number," as false philosophy would teach us, but rather the greatest good of all.
