Pause for Thought
From Father Brian D'Arcy, a Catholic Passionist priest:
"Money is a hot topic now. Whether it’s Wayne Rooney’s pay packet or budgets; the perilous state of the economy or cuts in public spending, everyone is talking money.
Tomorrow night, on BBC Radio 2, there’s a documentary with the intriguing title Does Money Make You Happy? It’s Faith in the World week on Radio 2. And the theme this year is money and the love of it.
As a member of a religious order, I have a vow of poverty. Everything I earn and everything I have belongs to the community. It gives me a different 'take' on money. I use money to live but I don’t live for money.
The comedian, the late Bob Hope, used to joke: “I do charities for Catholics and Protestants – I’d hate to lose heaven on a technicality.” Another legitimate view is: “Money’s not everything, but it’s nice to be miserable in comfort.” Money in itself rarely makes us happy, but it’s hard to be happy without enough to get by.
Money, and the use of it, is a central theme of the New Testament. St Luke says: “a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions… you cannot serve both God and money.” (Lk 12 and 16)
Jesus, as far as we know, didn’t have much personal wealth, but he understood it was necessary because one of his disciples, Judas, was in charge of the purse-strings. He fell under its spell and betrayed his Master for 30 pieces of silver.
Jesus insisted that it wasn’t money which made us important; how you spend your life helping others is what counts. He said that a widow who contributed two small coppers gave more than all the other wealthy people put together because she gave everything she had to live on.
Alarmingly, he also added that it was easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than it was for a rich person to get to heaven. Luckily he gave us some hope by reminding us that God can do the impossible.
In short then, I believe: (1) we need money to live; (2) if we have more money than we need we should help those who have none; (3) beware of greed – it always destroys us."
