A Catholic charity which recognizes that only the body needs help, not the soul, is not a Catholic charity. It is a humanist 'charity'. That doesn't mean that soup kitchens are a humanist operation, but they can be depending on the disposition and beliefs of their operators. Remember the soul and the final end of man, while feeding him soup: and that most important end is not to eventually spread the species throughout the universe and make our bodies eternally repairably by constant technological improvement–I suppose it could be–but it is no the final end of man. The final end of man is found in union with the absolute being, God, the removal of all suffering.
This is great news!
