More to life than making money

Filed under: Simple Living,The world today — John Maass @ 1:39 pm

Back in May, I posted on the Pope’s trip to Brazil, and his strong words on communism and capitalism today.

At HNN, Thomas Reeves has a column worth reading on the same subject.

He concludes this way:

In short, the Church does not officially endorse any specific nation or economic system. It acknowledges the benefits of capitalism but it knows that wealth and even freedom can be destructive if they lead to secularism, immorality, and the loss of souls. There is more to life, the Church declares, than making and spending cash and acquiring power and prestige. A lot more.
