I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these
By “the least of these”, Jesus most likely means the poor and the less fortunate. Jesus’s ministry has a strong focus on the poor, as he himself was a poor minister. This is why Catholic priests & nuns now take a vow of poverty.
Mother Teresa once had someone ask her if they could buy a plane ticket to fly with her and talk to her and learn from her. Mother Teresa told that person to take that money they had for the plane ticket and give it to the poor, for they could learn more from the poor than she could ever teach them.
