Development and Peace - Don't Give!

 
 
This Lent, when the collection for Development and Peace comes around, don't give anything. There are plenty of reputable charities that will take your money and use it for good projects, ones that you won't have to worry about offending your Catholic beliefs.
 
 
Just because it might be easier to put some money in that D & P envelope, take a moment and think. And then find a charity that you can really believe in, one that you can trust, take the time and find one that means something to you. Giving alms should not be done automatically, but should be done with careful thought and deliberation.

How is this post gossip? She's just urging people to educate themselves on which charities to give to!
