The Lord's Day, Sunday [or other day for other religions], is to be considered the best day for performance of good works by the laity, because nothing is more holy than to implement Christ's instructions on such matters; and such works of charity by the laity should be as direct to needy [sick, orphaned, handicapped, poor, imprisoned, persecuted, retarded, uneducated, homeless, etc.] as is possible -- i.e. this is to be supplemental to the church organization's own formal programs of charity.
