Do we have a duty to help the poor? How do we quantify that?
#2
This is hard for me to figure out too. We're in a pretty good place financially (esp compared to the rest of the world), but inordinate donations would be really irresponsible for us as well. My husband and I like to give to charities as our Christmas gifts to one another instead of gifts, and we gift donations to charities in lieu of a gift to anyone we think won't be annoyed by it. We also contribute to our diocese's annual Archbishop's Appeal and give as much as we can to organizations like St. Vincent de Paul and Goodwill. It still doesn't feel like enough. I'm interested to see other people's responses on this.
