Do we have a duty to help the poor? How do we quantify that?
#11
I read somewhere that we should keep enough money to feed, clothe, shelter, and educate ourselves and those dependent on us, and then put enough away for retirement or emergencies. The rest should go to the poor and the Church.

If you were looking for a number then you could always stick to the traditional tithe. 10% of your income: give 5% to your parish or a traditionalist order, and another 5% to a Catholic charity for the poor.
