"Charity is more than mere handouts, it means working to eliminate the structural causes of poverty and to promote the integral development of the poor. This means education, access to health care, and above all employment, for it is through free creative, participatory and mutually supportive labor that human beings express and enhance the dignity of their lives...The worst discrimination which the poor suffer is the lack of spiritual care. ... They need God and we must not fail to offer them his friendship, his blessing, his word, the celebration of the sacraments and a journey of growth and maturity in the faith."
~ Pope Francis
