THE COMPLEXITY OF POVERTY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

THE COMPLEXITY OF POVERTY Kenneth Himes, OFM From the outset the Christian community has wrestled with the realities of poverty and the poor. Jesus often preached parables that touched upon the reality of poverty in the experience of his listeners. In the Acts of the Apostles, there are scenes of the early Church struggling with how to think about possessions, poor widows in the community, and the proper attitude toward material wealth. In several letters Paul wrote about collecting money for the poor Jerusalem community, along with the scandal of communal meals at Corinth when rich and poor were divided from each other. And James scolded a community that overlooked its poor members while fawning over the rich. Later Christians—hermits, theologians, monks, mendicants, mystics, social reformers, spiritual writers —have added their voices to the discussion of poverty within the tradition. At times praised as a virtue and blessed as a condition, at other times opposed as a social evil ...

A CHURCH that is POOR and for the POOR [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

A CHURCH that is POOR and for the POOR Pope Francis The pope loves everyone, rich and poor alike, but he is obliged in the name of Christ to remind all that the rich must help, respect, and promote the poor. I exhort you to generous solidarity and to the return of economics and finance to an ethical approach which favors human beings....Our faith in Christ, who became poor, and was always close to the poor and the outcast, is the basis of our concern for the integral development of society’s most neglected members. Each individual Christian and every community is called to be an instrument of God for the liberation and promotion of the poor, and for enabling them to be fully a part of society. This demands that we be docile and attentive to the cry of the poor and to come to their aid.... The Church has realized that the need to heed this plea is itself born of the liberating action of grace within each of us, and thus it is not a question of a mission reserved only to a few... it m...

Poverly in the Old Testament [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

Poverly in the Old Testament Augustin George If we wish to arrive at an understanding of Jesus’ thinking about poverty, we must begin by examining what poverty meant for the Old Testament, since this is where Jesus found both his vocabulary and the point of departure for his thought. The vocabulary and ideas of the Old Testament on poverty, however, are quite different from our own, the former arising from a totally different mentality and sociological context. Here we set ourselves the task of seeking to describe the Old Testament meaning of poverty. ... [The Old Testament] vocabulary expresses an understanding of poverty quite different from our own. For our modern languages, as already in Greek and Latin, poverty is the lack of goods; it is an economic idea. While Hebrew sometimes considers poverty a lack or a situation of begging, it views it primarily as a situation of dependence or weakness. In the biblical mind, the poor person is less one who is indigent and more one who is ...

HEIRS TO THE KINGDOM The Poor in the New Testament [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

HEIRS TO THE KINGDOM The Poor in the New Testament Pheme Perkins In Matthew’s Gospel, two familiar sayings about the poor serve as bookends to Jesus’ public ministry. The Sermon on the Mount opens “blessed are the poor in spirit, the Kingdom of heaven is theirs” (Matt. 5:3). As his public ministry concludes, Jesus is dining in the house of Simon, the leper, when an anonymous woman anoints his head with costly ointment (Matt. 26:6-13). Jesus rebukes his disciples who protest that it could have been sold and the money given to the poor with words that recall Deut. 15:11, “...she has done a good deed for mu, for you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.” These key passages pose questions that bedevil any discussion of the poor in the New Testament. Insofar as New Testament writings insist on the ethical continuity between early Christian groups and their Jewish Scriptures, die social and legal understanding of how God’s covenant people will treat the poor in the...

A DIFFICULT TEXT For You Always Have the Poor with You [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

A DIFFICULT TEXT For You Always Have the Poor with You Bruce C. Birch and Larry Rasmussen Matthew 26:6-13 (see also Mark 14:3-9; John 12:1-8) tells of an incident in which a woman approaches Jesus and pours a jar of expensive ointment on his head. The disciples are scandalized by such waste and complain that money for the ointment could better have been given to the poor. Jesus intervenes by saying, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me.” He goes on to treat the anointing as a foreshadowing of his preparation for burial. Jesus’ statement, “For you always have the poor with you,” has been a constant nemesis to those in the Church who have tried to arouse the conscience of Christians to the harsh realities of poverty in our society and elsewhere in the world. Those who have defined the Gospel solely in terms of individual and “internal” salvation use this text to justify a total l...

A Sermon on Lazarus and the Rich Man [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

A Sermon on Lazarus and the Rich Man St. John Chrysostom Let us learn from this man not to call the rich lucky nor the poor unfortunate. Rather, if we are to tell the truth, the rich man is not the one who has collected many possessions but the one who needs few possessions; and the poor man is not the one who has no possessions but the one who has many desires. We ought to consider this the definition of poverty and wealth. So if you see someone greedy for many things, you should consider him the poorest of all, even if he has acquired everyone’s money. If, on the other hand, you see someone with few needs, you should count him the richest of all, even if he has acquired nothing. For we are accustomed to judge poverty and affluence by the disposition of the mind, not by the measure of one’s substance. Just as we would not call a person healthy who was always thirsty, even if he enjoyed abundance, even if he lived by rivers and springs (for what use is that luxuriance of water, when...

GOD BECOMES HUMAN [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

GOD BECOMES HUMAN Johannes Baptist Metz Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And he fasted 40 days and 40 nights, and afterward he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread." But he answered, "It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Cod'" (Deut. 8:3). Let us overlook the external process involved in these temptations, let us try to focus on their underlying intention, on the basic strategy at work. We can then say that the three temptations represent three assaults on the “poverty” of Jesus, on the self-renunciation through which he chose to redeem us. They represent an assault on the radical and uncompromising step he has taken: to come down from God and become human. To become human means to become “poor,” to have nothing that one might brag about before God... With the courageous acceptance o...

A VOW OF POVERTY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

A VOW OF POVERTY Sandra M. Schneider, IHM The proper understanding and prudent practice of religious poverty has probably never been easy in any age. It is of the very nature of religious poverty, because it has to do with material goods with which we cannot dispense absolutely and whose value is always relative to cultural situations, that it is always a provisional arrangement that has to be constantly reevaluated and readjusted. Our own times are characterized by conditions that make the understanding and prudent practice of poverty even more difficult than in times past. The major difference between our own age and any previous one, in relation to poverty, is our global interdependence at the economic level and our awareness of it. First, we are aware of the immense variety in standards of living throughout the world and even in our own counb-yr No matter how simple a lifestyle we adopt we cannot escape awareness that it is luxurious by comparison with that of many of our sister...

CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING AN OPTION FOR THE POOR AND THE COMMON GOOD [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING AN OPTION FOR THE POOR AND THE COMMON GOOD “To desire the common good and strive towards it is a requirement of justice and charity... The more we strive to secure a common good corresponding to the real needs of our neighbors, the more effectively we love them. Every Christian is called to practice this charity, in a manner corresponding to his vocation and according to the degree of influence he wields in the [state] This is the institutional path—we might also call it the political path—of charity, no less excellent and effective than the kind of charity which encounters the neighbor directly...” (no. 7). “Being out of work or dependent on public or private assistance for a prolonged period undermines the freedom and creativity of the person and his family and social relationships, causing great psychological and spiritual suffering. I would like to remind everyone, especially governments engaged in boosting the world’s economic and social assets, that th...

Christian Families in Care for the Poor [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

Christian Families in Care for the Poor Julie Hando Rubio Most American Christian families think of themselves as somewhere in the broad middle on the scale of financial wellness. They know that they are not poor, for they do not struggle to pay for basics like food, clothing, or housing and enjoy certain luxuries. Yet they are also keenly aware that they are not as rich as some people they know, see, or read about, who drive fancy new cars or go on extravagant vacations. Like most Americans, they prefer to think of themselves as middle class. Yet die majority of American families have incomes that place them among the most privileged people in the world. ... Most of these families give some of their income away.... One can then estimate ‘that approximately 3 percent of the income of Christian families is given to churches, the less fortunate, schools, health care, the arts, and to those working for political change. Of this charitable giving, only about onethird goes to serve the n...

STAY WITH US The Stranger as Evangelizer [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

STAY WITH US The Stranger as Evangelizer Roberto S. Goizueta "As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. But they urged him, ‘Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.' So he went in to stay with them. And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning [within us] while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?‘ So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the 11 and those with them who were saying, The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!'" (Luke 24:28-34) It’s no coincidence that, in the Scriptures, God so often approaches us in the form of a stranger, for our God is indeed a strange, alien, mysterious...

The Beauty of Being... WITH THE POOR [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

The Beauty of Being... WITH THE POOR Meg Stapleton Smith “Ten times a day something happens to me like this—some strengthening throb of amazement — some good sweet empathic ping and swell. This is the first, the wildest and the wisest thing I know: that the sold exists and is huilt entirely out of attentiveness. ” ~ Mary Oliver Before leaving for El Salvador, I had set high expectations for how I would spend my time there. I had crafted in my mind images of helping those whom I had not yet met, and waited in hopeful anticipation for a transformative semester. I had come to hold a firm belief that service for the poor was an essential aspect of my Christian faith. Yet, I was unaware that I had an enormous lesson to learn about what it really means to be a disciple of Christ. The Salvadorans taught me the art of presence, and brought me to an understanding on the beauty of being. I lived in El Salvador in the spring of my junior year of college and studied with the Casa de la Solidari...

VOLUNTARY DISPLACEMENT [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

VOLUNTARY DISPLACEMENT Henri J. Nouwen, Donald P. McNeill, CSC, and Douglas A. Morrison According to Webster's dictionary, displacement means to move or to shift from the ordinary or proper place. This becomes a telling definition when we realize the extent to which we are preoccupied with adapting ourselves to the prevalent norms and values of our milieu. We want to be ordinary and proper people who live ordinary and proper lives. There is an enormous pressure on us to do what is ordinary and proper —even the attempt to excel is ordinary and proper —and thus find the satisfaction of general acceptance. The call to community as we hear it from our Lord is the call to move away from the ordinary and proper places. Leave your father and mother. Let the dead bury the dead. Keep your hand on the plow and do not look back. Sell what you own. Give the money to the poor and come follow me (Luke 14:26; 9:60, 62; 18:22). The Gospels confront us with this persistent voice inviting us to move ...

THE OPTION FOR THE POOR IN CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

THE OPTION FOR THE POOR IN CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING Thomas Massaro, S.J. In one sense, the notion of the preferential option for the poor is relatively new to Catholic social teaching, as this phrase appeared in no papal social encyclical until 1987 and in no official Church documents at all until 1979. But in another sense, the preferential option for those who are poor and vulnerable has been present within the Christian tradition from the very start. The ministry of Jesus, in both words and deeds, was deeply wrapped up with this commitment to the well-being of the least fortunate. Making an option for the poor is not just a knee-jerk reaction to give the benefit of the doubt to those considered to be underdogs, but an abiding commitment, grounded in Scripture and tradition, to support social justice by placing oneself on the side of the vulnerable and marginalized.... Without using the precise phrase preferential option for the poor, the Church has long practiced this option in m...

THE SCANDAL OF THE WORKS OF MERCY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014

THE SCANDAL OF THE WORKS OF MERCY Dorothy Day The spiritual works of mercy are: to admonish the sinner, to instruct the ignorant, to counsel the doubtful, to comfort the sorrowful, to bear wrongs patiently, to forgive all injuries, and to pray for the living and the dead. The corporal works are to feed the hungry, to give drink to the thirsty, to clothe die naked, to ransom the captive, to harbor the harborless, to visit the sick, and to bury the dead. When Peter Maurin talked about the necessity of practicing the works of mercy, he meant all of them, and he envisioned houses of hospitality in poor parishes in every city of the country, where these precepts of Our Lord could be put into effect. He pointed out that we have turned to state responsibility through home relief, social legislation, and social security, and we no longer practice personal responsibility for our brother, but are repeating the words of the first murderer, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Not that our passing the b...
