Poverty around the world

Poverty can take many forms and has debilitating effects on individuals and communities, but it is not invincible. As people of faith, we respond in love to help alleviate suffering and extend compassion to the poor.

When we do it unto the least of these, we have done it to him. This passage in Matthew, makes clear that our faithfulness is judged by the way we act. There are numerous markers that indicate who the “least of these” are.

Disparity comes in many forms. However, even if sources of poverty are systemic, endemic and chronic they are still actionable, right-able, and even fight-able. Shake the foundations by embracing compassion.
