“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.” (Mt 25:35-36)

Christ leaves us no room to equivocate: we are meant to care for the strangers among us, not vilify them, not punish them, not neglect them, not inflict further suffering on them.
