moneyDon’t give it to me. Just give it.

My blog post for the National Catholic Register this week explains why.

Read that Gospel again. That’s exactly what the rich young man said to Jesus. He told Jesus how good he was.

The underlying principle is very simple—“you cannot serve God and money”—and a sad majority of American church-going Catholics still serve money, not God.

As I said at our local Catholic high school recently, holding up in one hand a one-dollar bill and in the other a picture of the Lord, “You can’t serve George and Jesus.”

So why should you give more generously? For Heaven’s sake. For your soul’s salvation, because if you don’t you’re serving George not Jesus, and if you serve a false God you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
