|"They have the buildings, we have the Faith" St. Athanasius|
"The Pharisees were lovers of money and sneered at Him"
How many times the inevitable issue of money comes up in the rich, decadent church in the "west". The ubiquitous "donate here" link, or some building project, fancy banquet, or fund raiser that needs your money.
However, one place on earth - where they do not have fancy banquets, nor buildings, nor money, nor the tax exempt status of a "registered charity"(is that perhaps why we barely hear a peep from our bishops on abortion??)
- is the Church in Africa.
Yes, Our Lord's beloved Africa has the Faith. The decadent "west" first came for the African's body. Now, in an even more sinister twist they return for the African's soul.
