Charity begins at home

From the Preface to Peter Kwasniewski’s Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis:

The Church is the family of God, and the pastors serve in loco parentis — so why are they absent? Are they truly taking care of their children, and of their children’s primary needs? Ecumenism, inter-religious dialogue, efforts for social justice, even evangelization efforts are worthless if the faithful themselves are not first being well clothed, nourished, and taught — clothed by sacraments frequently and worthily received, nourished by a sacred liturgy offered with beauty and reverence, taught sound doctrine in catechesis, preaching, and schools.
