Charity
 "Charity is patient, is kind; charity does not envy, is not pretentious, is not puffed up, is not ambitious, is not self-seeking, is not provoked; thinks no evil, does not rejoice over wickedness, but rejoices with the truth, bears with all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Cor. 13:4-7). 

To have Charity is to love God above all things for Himself and be ready to renounce all created things rather than offend Him by serious sin.
 ( Matt. 22:36-40)
