    This Post by Fr Tony Percy really hits the nail on the head.

    Many families are in dire need throughout the World. Food, water, shelter and other BASIC needs are absent. Telling someone who is in need that you will pray for them is good. Prayer without works doesn’t cut the mustard.

    Many modern-day Landlords could learn from Zacchaeus. They dont have to charge exorbitant rents. They dont have to boot out struggling families unable to pay rent increases.
    As Fr Tony pointed out, Pope John Paul 11 stated that “All private property has a social mortgage on it”. How many holiday/investment houses and units are empty for long periods of time. Of course, helping others comes at a risk. Welcome to The Cross. “When i was hungry, cold and homeless, what did you do to help”.

    Stop blaming the Government. The old JFK quote comes to mind, “Don’t ask what your Country can do for you, what can you do for your Country”?
    Over the Centuries, many Hospitals, refuges and educational institutions were built because the Government did nothing. Is God giving us the opportunity to be Good Samaritans?
