When exactly did Jesus, God the Father or the Holy Spirit tell us to relegate our personal responsibility to help those less fortunate in favor of a bunch of government officials and politicians? do these so called Nuns really believe that Jesus wanted us to render onto Caesar our personal mandate to be our brother's keeper? He certainly did nothing of the kind when He became incarnate for the purpose of setting the example for us to follow. Shame on such heresy.

And they accompanied him to the ship.

Maybe those Nuns should go to the Vatican instead and have them cough up some of those trillions in treasures to give to the poor.
