almsgiving XXIV

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 21, 2004

Suppose you're director of the planned giving office of the Diocese of Norwich, Connecticut. As such, you're viewed as the bishop's liaison to wealthy Catholics who are contemplating making major estate gifts to the diocese.

You have $1,250 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to a Connecticut Marian shrine

(b) to another spiritual or corporal work of mercy

(c) to John Kerry for President, Inc., and the Democratic National Committee

If you're John Butler, your answer is (c).

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
