Swiss bishops urge reflection on attitude towards money
Catholic World News - August 01, 2012
Writing on behalf of the Swiss episcopal conference, Bishop Markus Büchel of Sankt Gallen called upon Catholics to reflect on their attitude towards money during the economic crisis.
Noting that “money is not an end in itself,” Bishop Büchel said that “money is at the service of man, and man is not a slave of money.”
“Those who invest for gain with no regard for the unhappiness of their neighbor are acting in a decidedly irresponsible way,” he added: investors, he said, should take into account humane working conditions, the “dignity of employees,” and the “careful use of natural resources.”
