Pope tells Catholics: ‘Be a little poorer’

Pope Francis has offered the Church a breath of fresh be-cause he has restated time-honored truths in down-to-earth ways. Much of his statements have focused on the issue of the poor and our relationship to them. A June 7 Vatican press release revealed one such statement by the Holy Father: “Poverty in the world is a scandal. In a world where there is so much wealth, so many resources to feed every-one, it is unfathomable that there are so many hungry children, that there are so many children without an education, so many poor persons. We all have to think if we can be-come a little poorer, all of us have to do this. How can I be-come a little poorer in order to be more like Jesus, who was the poor Teacher?”

Christian stewards recognize Jesus’ teaching in that statement: For whom much is given, much is expected. This is can be a hard gospel teaching to embrace. The Pope also reminds us that “You can’t speak of poverty without having experience with the poor.”

As we discern our own level of generosity toward the poor, we must come face to face with them, and not in some vague manner. Perhaps a day spent with refugees resettling in your community, or at a daycare serving low-income children, or helping people select groceries at a food bank will bring poverty home to us and help in our discernment. ~~International Catholic Stewardship Council
