Transcript of Caritas is present and active in the world today through the

Caritas is present and active in the world today through the way of which they are a global assistance and development organization of the Catholic Church. They assist by helping the poor live an existence to dignity, and supporting the oppressed to rediscover their self-esteem. Caritas arrange programs through schools, shops, and individual supporters. These programs are to raise money for their orphans. The events they run include campaigning awareness of different issues, and activities for the community to get involved with, such as “project compassion”, this is an annual fundraiser for awareness and education appeal, it is held during lent the six week period before Easter. From these events Caritas receives money and funds to operate and assist those who require it. An example of a requirement that a high percentage of people don’t have is education. Caritas runs workshops and provides resources for the orphans. Caritas has organisations all around the world which change people’s lives each day. http://www.caritas.org.au/learn/where-we-work At each of the individual organisation across the world they all have one program which is the same and then a different program in relation to the situation of the town. An example is that every organisation does project compassion when it is that time of year in their town/country but then Zimbabwe has a program to raise money for their current situation of water and food supply, so Caritas is not just about raising money for the individual orphan but also the third world countries that are suffering just as bad as the orphans. Caritas doesn’t always give direct help. An example is that they help people help themselves and others by giving seeds to farmers in local communities. This works by the farmer ore framers planting the seed and then the local families, individuals and farmers harvesting and sending the produce away to sell. Once it is sold and they receive the income the community share the money equally or put the money towards a facility for the benefit of the community.
For Caritas to be present and active they must obey the guidelines of their national council. Their council is responsible for ensuring the promotion of Caritas Australia is mandate. The National Council is the group which provides strategic direction and advice to Caritas.

What are ways we can help and what is it that can be done?
This is linked to the Catholic social teaching “we are one we are many” because ways we can help are by donating money, food, clothing, or even fresh water. We can also help by sponsoring an orphan. The catholic social teaching “we are one we are many” outlines that every person has a right to human dignity, a balance of needs and common goods and to be seen along with treated like Jesus Christ. Caritas works for this in the way that they lift lives up all the time by doing something we would consider so basic but jet the person being help takes it as a lifesaving thing. An example of this is simply giving the homeless food.

Who needs the most help?
People who need the most help can be anyone because people see themselves and others differently, but even though we don’t know the back ground of people we know that those who desperately require assistance are the disabled, poor, homeless, or even the lonely who may just need company to regain their self. This is lined to the catholic social teaching “those most in need come first and no person is and island; we need each other,” this connects through that it focus’ on those who really require the help to survive in comparison to those who think they are worse off put they still have a roof over their head, food, clothing, and everything someone else has to live without, and this is what they emerging moral question is saying help the ones in most desperate need first.
How do we change global poverty, humanitarian emergences’, food security and sustainable agriculture?

We can work towards changing global poverty, humanitarian emergences’, food security and sustainable agriculture by changing our bad habits like polluting and negative attitude to the right way of living. This is connected to the catholic social teaching “the world has been placed in our care” meaning Jesus has made this lovely place we live in for us so we should take good care of it just as if you were to get a present from your friend you would take good care of it. This is linked by changing global poverty, humanitarian emergences’, food security and sustainable agriculture because if we change this we are making the world a better place and showing that we care for it.

Jesus’ mission was to bring good news to the poor, to recover the sight to the blind, to let the oppressed free and to proclaim the word of the Lord. Caritas shows Jesus’ Mission continued both past and present through their motto -:” End poverty, promote justice, and uphold dignity” they also show it through the way that believers past and present are all inspired by his journey of life and wish to live the way of him, and to encourage others to live that way .

Jesus’ mission was to heal those who were crippled, paralysed or wounded in some way. In the past, believers continued this mission by raising money to fund for the paralysed, wounded, sick, etcetera to get special attention from a nurse or qualified doctor. Meanwhile presently, believers continue this mission by using their own service of the qualified paramedics to help the sick and all.
Jesus also had a mission throughout his life to always take care of everyone no matter of their condition and to love everyone equally. This mission was continued by Caritas in the past by having people who would have a meeting place for everyone together and talk to different people who would work towards solving their problem. Presently though believers continue this mission by organising activities for people to socialize and be a part of the community. Caritas also presently continues the mission by treating everyone equal regardless of ethnicity, religion or political beliefs, they supports long-term development for every person.

Jesus had numerous missions but he constantly had respect for each individual, even though this was not much of a mission for Jesus to accomplish it is still a mission because it was a task required of him. This has been continued in the past and is still presently continued through Caritas in the way that they have set principals for the dignity of the human person, the common good, and solidarity. Caritas believers have faith that everybody is created in the image of Jesus consequently believing this Caritas lives and performs Jesus’ mission.

Jesus always had a mission everything he did was a mission and he had goals to archive for God his father. Whether they may be future or present goals, Jesus would always successfully accomplish them, which is a mission within itself. Caritas had and still presently had visions for the future. Their visions are to change the world, to make it a better place by global poverty, food security and sustainable agriculture, lowering the humanitarian emergencies, etcetera. Really their future vision is a just and fair world, a world balance, peace, free of poverty, and a world where all humans can live in dignity.
