James

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land. (Deut. 15:11)

Hattie

If the Catholic Church wants to save itself as an institution it must embrace liberation theology.

I don't know much about liberation theology, other than knowing the Church opposed it (under John Paul II especially) but the Gospels are clear enough on the matter, presumably one reason the Church resisted having them available in the vernacular with such vehemence, even resorting to burning of translators (the book itself being presumably too holy).
