I agree! Social! Yuck! St. Vincent De Paul was founded on going door-to-door to make sure the residence had access to the sacraments. Giving material goods was not the focus. If those who needed sacraments and the Graces, it could make for a saved soul and material needs to come. The Blue Army did this as well. When you help them in this way, it makes for a better life on earth and for heaven. The Church also had a society of the Sacred Heart for member who were struggling with alcohol and such. They were to follow the rules of sacraments Often and to make the meetings. If you recall, you hear of the 12 step program. They claim maybe 10% cures. NOt much, but are the 10% Catholic receiving sacraments? The 12 step has no powers of the Precious Blood, no graces to give help. I told this to my son to rise above gambling. I told him about the 12 step. I told him that it might be OK to go before them and say you are what you are, but after that they can give nothing. When Jesus Christ came and shed his blood, this is what is needed in our whole life time on earth. Nothing else will do. And the sacraments must be valid and true. If not, you get nothing. If you speak Social teachings that is nothing. Truth is there is a remnant of valid sacraments, seek them out!!
