CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Care of the Poor by the Church (10868 words)
From this object arise the general duties of ecclesiastical relief of the poor: to prevent those able to earn their living from falling into poverty, to assist with alms the sick and the poor, to raise the religious and moral condition of the poor, and to render social life a blessing for needy mankind.
Such institutions for the collective care of the poor were: the diaconi, great store-houses near the church, where the poor daily enjoyed meals in common; the henodochi, for strangers; the nosocomi for the sick; the orphanotrophi and brephotrophi for orphans and foundlings; the gerontocomi for the aged.
Though every poor family must be looked upon individually and should be relieved according to its individual constitution, the presence of large numbers of poor families subjected to practically the same environment and manifesting typical forms of weakness and inefficiency will present conditions which may be best dealt with collectively.
