“This dynamic of charity received and given is what gives rise to the Church’s social teaching, which is caritas in veritate in re sociali: the proclamation of the truth of Christ’s love in society. This doctrine is a service to charity, but its locus is truth.” (Pope Benedict XVI, 2009, Caritas in veritate #5.2, Encyclical)
