There is something to be said of the call to be mindful of the plight of the poor among us. The point of the Catholic faith is more than just about giving food and money and clothing to the poor people. To be sure, these are important aspects of our faith. But more than that, the constant call of the Gospel is about making good our human lives. God created us to be human beings, not something less human because we are now the baptised "elite". If anything, being Catholic should make us more human than ever.
