Opus Bono Sacerdotii: Helping priests who have no one else

From Father John Zuhlsdorf:

Opus Bono Sacerdotii (OBS) is a lay organization that assists Catholic priests having difficulties.

Their motto:

A Catholic Priest Needs Your Help Right Now! 

From the website:
  • We turn no priests away who need our help when we can help them.
  • OBS has been a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in existence since April of 2002.
  • Our mission is to love Jesus Christ the High Priest. We fulfill our mission by manifesting our love for Christ in serving each priest individually. We focus on each priest’s unique needs and loving him unconditionally.
  • OBS is funded by individual donations. We charge no fees for our assistance to priests.
  • All of the aid that we provide priests evolves as each situation dictates the type of assistance needed given the resources available
During Lent it is good to give alms.

"...During Lent it is good to give alms..."

The Holy Father gave up being Pope for Lent this year, so I gave up being nice?

Which raises the question:

"Is almsgiving considered being nice?"
