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.

We must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said,‘It is more blessed to give than to receive
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you,‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’
Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.
Luke 6:38 ESV
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.
Luke 12:33-34 ESV / 91 helpful votes
Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.
For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat; for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall,
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said,‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all. And there was much weeping on the part of all; they embraced Paul and kissed him, being sorrowful most of all because of the word he had spoken, that they would not see his face again. 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.
