almsgiving XI

By Diogenes (articles) | Aug 10, 2004

Suppose you're a priest of the Order of the Friar Servants of Mary. Ordained in 1967, you have a distinguished vita and are professor of ethics and director of Catholic-Jewish Studies at Chicago's Catholic Theological Union. You've even been called "the leading Catholic authority on Christian-Jewish relations." You have $204 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to a Marian shrine

(b) to an interfaith pro-life organization

(c) to the Association of Hebrew Catholics

(d) to the Democratic National Committee

If you're Father John Pawlikowski, one of the most strident critics of The Passion, your answer is (d).

Richard Cross holds a doctorate in psychology, who has taught at the university level, including at Franciscan University. He is currently an educational researcher and consultant in the field of psychology and related disciplines.
