almsgiving XXIII

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 11, 2004

Suppose you're the Archdiocese of New York's executive director of development -- the archdiocese's top fundraiser, the cardinal's liaison to wealthy Catholics, the person you call for tickets to the nonpartisan Al Smith Dinner. You have $250 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to an orthodox religious community whose members minister in New York

(b) to another spiritual or corporal work of mercy

(c) to John Kerry for President, Inc.

If you're Helen Lowe, your answer is (c).
