Telemachus

I've been thinking this way for a while. As the State usurps charitable giving in the form of "welfare," people become less and less capable of private charity. It's a spiritual muscle that atrophies. Empathy, love, and compassion will follow suit.

Longing for Home

Today's reading from Acts: "....no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own" and they "brought the money and put it at the feet of the Apostles."
When I was in College in the 70's, I came home one weekend to tell my parents that I had become a Socialist, based on these verses from the book of Acts. My dear mother (RIP) replied, "The difference is that those in the early Church gave everything by their own choice. It was not taken from them." I think I grew up a little that day.
