CWN Editor's Note: An excerpt from the suggested message to members of Congress: “As negotiations begin for FY20, I urge you to oppose any cuts to international assistance and to ensure the highest levels possible are provided for poverty-reducing accounts that address the root causes of migration and support migrants, refugees, internally displaced persons, and asylum seekers overseas.”

    Hmm. Do you think that if the Church would become more faithful to its mandate and less dependent on government, maybe we ourselves could provide the international humanitarian assistance needed around the world? The government's role is policy. The Church's role is to bring the succor of Christ to the nations through works of charity. Demand less government interference in the things that are of God, and more works of charity in things that fall within the purview of the mission of the Church.
