The Church’s Mission to the Poor. The Gospel of Luke, the Gospel of God’s compassion, the Gospel of the lowly being raised up, challenges us today with the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man. The parable is not meant to defame those who have worked long and hard for their financial position in life. The parable is meant to help us all recognize the responsibilities our positions in life demand.
