Based on the 1965 Vatican II document:
DECREE ON THE APOSTOLATE OF THE LAITY, APOSTOLICAM ACTUOSITATEM- 13
This article speaks about the laity having "a full consciousness of their role in building up society whereby they strive to perform their domestic, social, and professional duties with such Christian generosity that their manner of acting should gradually penetrate the whole world of life and labor"
generosity means imitating the kindness and compassion and love of Jesus. Such
generosity is already present in all societies.
Think of the daily sight of people offering their Metro seat to somone in need.
Christians are called to support, encourage and increase such a presence of love, and through that love help more and more people discover the Source of all love
Jesus, may Christians always give a good example of kindness
