almsgiving XXI

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Oct 24, 2004

Suppose you're one of the 25 active diocesan priests of the Diocese of Las Vegas. Ordained in 1962, you're pastor of St. Andrew's Catholic Community in Boulder City. You're a member of the diocesan presbyteral council and the priests' personnel board. You have $500 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to a corporal or spiritual work of mercy

(b) to a pro-life candidate

(c) to Tom Gallagher, a former casino executive and pro-abortion Catholic congressional candidate who strongly supports embryonic stem cell research.

If you're the Very Reverend Joseph P. Annese (here discussing his zeal for Zen and here pictured on the parish's labyrinth), your answer is (c).
