Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Chicago archdiocese studies Wichita's way

I like this in concept, though I am not sure how they practically are doing this stewardship plan (not too many details are in the story). Working in a parish as I do, I fully realize that most people are not giving anywhere near even 2% of their income, at least not to the church. Down there in Wichita, it seems the good old-fashioned method of true tithing (10% if at all possible) is the aim.

I wonder if our Archdiocese here has considered this? Just think - perhaps instead of only serving the affluent kids at St. Thomas Academy, Hill Murray, and Nativity of Our Lord, our Archdiocese could help to serve the poorer families as well. Now that would be holding true to the Catholic ideal of schooling.
