Principle of Subsidiarity

Spread the news about the wonderful job Bishop Marino is doing in Madison.

In 1931, the principle of subsidiarity was definitely pronounced by Pope Pius XI in his encyclical, Quadragesimo Anno. It simply states that a higher entity in the social order may not do for the lower order what it is capable of doing for 
itself. This principle is not relegated only to the social order. It must be recognized as the principle that guides all entities in the spiritual order. There is also a positive role for natural market realities to foster help to the poor without burdensome and wasteful regulation and bring the greatest good for the greatest number of people by letting local entities take care of the poor. I bet there are a great many Catholic families who would love to sponsor a poor American family themselves. I know I would. Why hasn't anyone in the Church asked yet? Or are they not in that much need? I would love to get to know and help support a poor American family myself. Where are they? Does anyone know?
