Patrick Joseph Hayes

American Religious Leader, Cardinal, Archbishop of New York

"Be charitable in your thoughts, in your speech and in your actions. Be charitable in your judgments, in your attitudes and in your prayers. Think charitably of your friends, your neighbors, your relatives and even your enemies. And if there be those whom you can help in a material way, do so in a quiet, friendly, neighborly way, as if it were the most command and everyday experience for you. Tongues of men and angels, gifts of prophecy and all mysteries and all knowledge are as nothing without charity."

"Contraception is satanic. [response to Margaret Sanger's advocacy of birth control]"
