To be charitable in the world in which we live is to act counter to everything our culture teaches us.
Our world is driven by money and profit.
It is cutthroat, miserly, and tough.
Charity goes totally against all of this.
Charity means to give.
To give to those in need.
Not to blame them for their own misfortune.
To do this we must have compassion.
And we must overcome the fear that makes us hoard money and things.
The fear that we will never have enough.
Give to your neighbor and treat him kindly.
And you will be a child of God.
