Pope Francis: Charity is the only acceptable kind of fanaticism

Today, Pope Francis said that the only acceptable kind of fanaticism is that of “charity.”

“Any other type of fanaticism does not come from God, and is not pleasing to him,” Pope Francis stated. “True faith is one that makes us more charitable, more merciful, more honest and more humane … it makes us see the other not as an enemy to be overcome but a brother or sister to be loved, served and helped.”
