“Money has to serve, not to rule”

The dignity of each human person and the pursuit of the common good are concerns which ought to shape all economic policies. – Pope Francis

Scripture Text:(JAS 5:1-6)
Come now, you rich, weep and wail over your impending miseries.
Your wealth has rotted away, your clothes have become moth-eaten,
your gold and silver have corroded,
and that corrosion will be a testimony against you;
it will devour your flesh like a fire.
You have stored up treasure for the last days.
Behold, the wages you withheld from the workers
who harvested your fields are crying aloud;
and the cries of the harvesters
have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
You have lived on earth in luxury and pleasure;
you have fattened your hearts for the day of slaughter.
You have condemned;
you have murdered the righteous one;
he offers you no resistance.

We are all sinners.  It is what I learn from those sins, how I invite God’s help, how I respond to those who are vulnerable that matters.
