The Reign of Christ. Book One. Chapter Fourteen: Care For The Needy

Although these men were also obliged to be at the service of the elders and to help in the preservation and exercise of the discipline of Christ and the administration of the sacraments, it was their principal duty to keep a list of all of Christ’s needy in the churches, to be acquainted with the life and character of each, and to give to individuals from the common offerings of the faithful whatever would suffice for them to live properly and devoutly.
