The word ‘charity’ almost always brings to mind material aid offered to the needy. And this it is: almsgiving is a praiseworthy habit, which has always been promoted by Holy Mother Church. However, we should not forget that another type of charity, the spiritual works of mercy; to instruct, to give counsel, to console, to comfort, to pardon, and to bear wrongs patiently (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2447), are more important than the corporal works of mercy, namely to give food to the hungry, give shelter, clothe the naked, visit the sick and imprisoned, bury the dead.
Within the Church there flourished, as in a lush garden, varied religious orders dedicated to the material assistance of the poor, but have they ever considered themselves exempt from the obligation to instruct in the true doctrine the ignorant who were in the darkness of error? Read more…

When Our Lord said to St Peter “Feed My Lambs” He was referring to the Holy Eucharist. That is a greater act of Charity than any material offering.
When Our Lord says “I AM ALL you need!” He is speaking literally, as many Saints, such as Marie Julie Jahenny, Blessed Anne Emmerich, Blessed Elena Aiello, St Gemma Galgani, St Anna Maria Tiagi, lived for YEARS existing TOTALLY on Our Lord’s TRUE Presence in the Most Holy Eucharist.
Why on earth Francis, with his proof of Our Lord’s True Presence in the Holy Eucharist Miracle of Buenos Aires, (His Former Diocese) STILL makes no mention of this miracle, OR it’s scientific analysis by Dr Ricardo Castanon PHD – a former atheist is cause for concern in itself. He could evangelise, bearing witness to the world, but remains silent.
God help us!
These three watched in sequence state objective TRUTH proven scientifically. The blood of every known Eucharistic Miracle matches that of the blood upon the Turin Shroud and also that found on the Sudarium of Oviedo. Science PROVES without a shadow of a doubt, that the person whose blood is on the Shroud and the Sudarium, is from the same person whose flesh can be examined in every known Eucharistic Miracle.
Dr Ricardo Castanon PHD has examined the Eucharistic Miracles, which were sent to two Universities for complete analysis.

“Why on earth Francis, with his proof of Our Lord’s True Presence in the Holy Eucharist Miracle of Buenos Aires, (His Former Diocese) STILL makes no mention of this miracle, OR it’s scientific analysis”
Its quite plain that Francis isn’t at all interested in the Eucharist –
– he silences completely this miracle you mention, when as the Archbishop, he should have been the first one to promote it
– he denied the multiplication of the loaves done by Jesus to teach about the Eucharist
– he wants the Eucharist to be sacrilegiously given to those in manifest mortal sin
– he demeans the Real Presence to put it on the same plane as the Lutheran meal
The real question is not why he does do do real evangelization, but whether someone like him who is not Catholic can hold any public office in the Church.
“Why study theology? Feed the poor.” Francis should have told Kasper this some decades ago.
One more communist sideline. You should include this in your communism category.
