The Power of Money
In this highly capitalistic society, money dictates the rules and profit seems to be the highest priority, putting fundamental human values of solidarity and justice at the margins of our daily living. However, money in itself is not evil. We all need money to meet our daily needs, provide for our families, and carry out our different fronts of mission, ad intra and ad extra, in the Church. What is malignant is the desire to accumulate, ignoring the needs of others in the process, and the unscrupulous usury of money in fake charity, exploiting the poor even further. Money has the power to corrupt, harden, and even destroy our hearts, taking away the credibility of our being Church. However, it also has the power to rebuild lives, restore dignity, and bring back the joy of a decent human life to millions who are deprived of it by poverty, exploitation, and oppression. We are called to be a "Church of the Poor," good stewards and not owners of the blessings received.
