THE DANGER OF RICHES ...
“Increased possession is not the ultimate goal of nations, nor of individuals. All growth is ambivalent. It is essential if we are to develop as human beings, but in a way it imprisons us if we consider it the supreme good, and it restricts our vision. Then we see hearts harden and minds close, and people no longer gather together in friendship but out of self-interest, which soon leads to oppositions and disunity. The exclusive pursuit of possessions thus becomes an obstacle to individual fulfillment and to true human greatness.

OUR CELEBRATION FOR OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY

HISTORIC CHURCHES CYCLE RIDE

Both for nations and for individuals, avarice is the most evident form of moral underdevelopment.”
Pope Paul VI, Populorum Progressio (1967)
