Preferential Option for the Poor

What is Justice for the poor? Caring for the poor is everyone’s responsibility. Preferential care should be shown to poor and vulnerable people, whose needs and rights are given special attention in God’s eyes. At Caritas Australia, our programs aim to reach the poorest and most marginalised people, which often requires greater effort to reach more remote regions.

You are not making a gift of what is yours to the poor man, but you are giving him back what is his. The earth belongs to everyone, not to the rich.
