Priests fight the bite of the recession
In these days of economic uncertainty, we’ve heard a lot of criticism of materialist mindsets, of bankers, of people who were irresponsible with money from those high up in the Spiritual World. Everyone from the Pope to Rowan Williams has had something to add about the credit crisis and the recession we are in right now.
Across La Manche, priests are putting their money where their mouth is and are foregoing a month’s salary in order to help victims of the economic crisis.
La Famille Chretienne has the story:
Priests in the diocese of Lyon have followed the example of a Spanish diocese and are being invited to give a month’s worth of salary (which is around 900 euros) to a charitable association supporting the victims of the crisis.
Thanks to Koztoujours for pointing it out.
