Why Not?

Why Not?

Seven-year-old Kristina sat in front of me before the 11 am service recently, wearing her alb. I leaned forward and asked her if she knew that girls at one time were not allowed to be acolytes. She looked puzzled more than shocked. “Why not?” she asked.

“Jesus understood money. He spoke of it from time to time and always in the sense that money is not something that should be the be-all and end-all of things. Wealth is to be shared, not hoarded and not paid out to accomplish something criminal or even slightly criminal.”
