As Catholics we are called to help all of our brothers and sisters in need—especially those oppressed by poverty.

"The Church serves and stands in solidarity with those who are poor and jobless, helping them break the cycle of poverty and act on behalf of their own families and communities."—Archbishop Timothy Dolan, Letter to Bishops on Economic Situation, 2011

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that those who suffer from poverty "are the object of a preferential love" by the Church "which, since her origin and in spite of the failings of many of her members, has not ceased to work for their relief, defense, and liberation through numerous works of charity which remain indispensable always and everywhere."
