Weekly Note

Fr. Damian Zuerlein (September 13-14)   One of the questions I was asked recently concerning the Archbishop’s campaign had to do with the notion of responsibility of those who are blessed by God with wealth to those who are not so blessed. The question arises because of the request in the campaign to help with the Catholic schools in the eastern portion of Omaha.

My answer to the question followed the logic arising from the teaching on stewardship that we follow in the parish. Since God is the one who gives ALL gifts, since we are simply STEWARDS of these gifts and not owners, since the gifts were given to us not solely for our own benefit, but for the good of others, then it stands to reason that God has blessed the wealthy with material items, not so that they may hoard things for themselves, but rather use that wealth to benefit those who have little and have great material need.

The duty of the wealthy to take action to alleviate the suffering of the poor is a prominent theme in the Old Testament. The prophets raged against those who did not care for the poor. Nations fell because they mistreated the poor. Doom and gloom was predicted for those who look out only for themselves.

The New Testament continues the theme, but the tone of the material changes. Jesus’ parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus certainly contains strong language about what will happen to those who ignore the needs of the poor in this life. The story about the final judgment in Matthew 25 stresses the duty to care for those in need. In this parable such caring seems to be a way of life, since those who cared for the poor weren’t even aware that in so doing they had been caring for their Lord. Living a life of generosity was simply how they lived.  read more...
