The Catholic clergy are forever trying to persuade us to give to charity or to volunteer; to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
This week-end's sermon at my parish was reminding us
| ||"But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation."|
| " And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed are ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God."|
Good pitch, but I don't think the pope would go for it. (sigh) Hope does spring eternal, doesn't it? It is high time the highest member of the Catholic clergy and perhaps one of the most influential people in the world set an example.
