The Poor, Those Other People

"How I wish," [the Pope] said, "that Christians could kneel in veneration when a poor person enters the church.
"The Pope’s words came during a video message which was broadcast at a charity theatre performance"
But where does that leave the poor who are Christians?
Or the Christian who is poor?
I think we make a great error when teachings constantly emphasize the otherness of those who should not be marginalized.
Because, you know, here comes everybody.
Pretty sure I've heard we should,
Show neither partiality to the weak nor deference to the mighty.
Show no partiality as you adhere to the faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ.  
Speaking of false dichotomy, this:
The cast were not professional actors but instead the poor and needy
...just cracked me up, as it would, I think, anyone who ever made or tried to make performing arts his livelihood. 
Literally LedOL.

"Instead! "
