‘The poor you will always have with you.’

That includes those in monetary penury and those in spiritual penury, and I suspect there are many other areas of penury that human beings suffer.

There are those who, like Theresa of Calcutta, are called to work for those in dire physical need, and there are those called to deal with those in dire spiritual need... The Church's job is to tend the poor souls in need, not to save since that belongs to the Divine Remit, and not ours.
- Jonathan Munn
Though we do indeed have a mission to the poor, the very idea of ‘ending global poverty’ while there is still sin in the hearts of men is both impossible and heretical.
- Ed Pacht
