"Undoubtedly, the national government has a serious responsibility toward the poor. However, given the inefficiency of the achieved results, it would be foolish to pretend that the government takes the lead in the march towards creative, constructive, and formative social action. We Christians ought to assume a much greater degree of responsibility in creating answers to the needs of the poor, compassionate and effective answers with a communitarian base. We ought to offer the leadership in this search. We need to commit ourselves personally to the task of promoting services for the poor in ways that reaffirm their dignity and reflect God's love and care”.
