almsgiving VII

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 25, 2004

Suppose you're a priest ordained in 1967 and administrator of the St. Paul Albanian Catholic Community in Rochester Hills, Michigan. You have $1,300 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to the Church in Albania

(b) to a work of mercy that serves the poor of Michigan

(c) to pro-abortion presidential candidate Wesley Clark and to Eliot Engel, an ardently pro-abortion congressman from New York.

If you're Father Anton Kcira of the Archdiocese of Detroit, your answer is (c).

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
