      Christmas and Easter (Sunday) are days of obligation.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Yes

      And the rest of the year, too.

      Because I want to and not because my parish's denomination obligates me to do so.
      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      I wonder sometimes if, thirty years from now, it will be the norm for people to go to church on five or six major feast days of the year but not every Sunday...somewhat in the manner of the "high holy days" in Judaism.

      A lot of people already attend only at Christmas and Easter - they are sometimes called C&E Christians.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      Here it is C&E because Anglicans used to call themselves Church of England (C of E) and they suffer from C&E more than most.
