the document goes on to point out that vowed religious are much more than social workers:

This is good, very good.
The problem with concentrating on social aspects [alone] is that it is that is nothing less than concentrating on the symptoms rather than the cause. Much of America's [and indeed the world's] societal ills is nothing other than than a deficiency in love, this is why again and again the New Testament says to love.

There’s a deficiency in appropriate love. Too much love of self not enough love of others.

The notion that the true mission of the Church is social work become prevalent among liberal Catholics in the ‘60s. Many of the religious and secular priests left the Church and married, thinking of social work as a more virtuous line of work than “dispensing” the Sacraments. Many who remained decided to reshape the Church to fit their new consciousness.
