Idealistically, a Catholic would remember the meaning of the word catholic: universal. The Catholic of faith perceives all men as God's children and extols the virtue of charity as paramount. Thus, he/she would remember the lesson taught by Jesus who said,
"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:24)
The Catholic of faith would have just that--faith. And, applying this faith to every facet of his/her life, the individual would commit acts of charity by trying to help people, at home and in the workplace and other areas. Thus, he would offer physical help; in addition, he/she would offer spiritual support, as well, by teaching through example the virtues.
