I would like to help fulfill our Lord’s command to help the needy by giving to an organization that practices the corporal works of mercy (feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, etc.). I also would like that organization to offer spiritual works of mercy (instruct the ignorant, admonish sinners, etc) to those they serve, helping not only their bodies but their souls.
Many of the Catholic charitable organizations I have looked into appear to be overly focused on material relief and somewhat indifferent to spiritual needs, at least in their promotional materials.
Does anyone know of a solid Catholic apostolate to the poor that is orthodox in doctrine and also practices spiritual ministry? Thank you!
