If I don't stop to help someone who is homeless, is it a sin?

In this Random Nun Clip, Immaculate Heart of Mary Sr. Maxine Kollach and Sr. Shannon Schrein, a Sylvania Franciscan, field a question from Gabriel in Australia.

Gabriel asks: Is it a mortal sin when I do not help homeless people I see on the street? Sister Shannon proposes that Gabriel may be experiencing something, but not sin. It may be a call. It may be an invitation from God.
