"Truly I tell you, whatsoever you did for the
least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." --
According to our government's statistics, over 14% of the U.S.
population lives in poverty, a country with unprecedented
wealth. In the current economic crisis, religious and private
organizations struggle to meet the basic needs of individuals and
families. As Christians, we know that direct aid is not sufficient.
Impelled by the Gospel, we need to help transform public
policies so that all people have opportunities for education and
job training, a living wage, and access to childcare, medical care,
transportation and housing.
Both nationally and globally, the chasm between the wealthy few
and the desperately poor majority continues to widen. It is
greatly affected by the powerful influence of large corporations as
well as the inequities of trade relations in our globalized
consumer economy. In addition, the level of foreign debt burdens
many impoverished nations.
