YEAR 2016, The EVIDENCE OF SUCCESS …

Dear Fathers of Patmos Island,

.

In this stormy period, your landing place there is always dear. Small tip, already for experiences, Italians were accustomed to thinking that what belongs to the Church to be free this because of the climate of pauperism (false) and because of the trap 8×1000.

face go, if fails, this concept: the good things and the value you have to pay or donation and support, or in subscription!

Otherwise, after the sad juice thinned with water to which too often they have used the priests, Now we have only lengthened faith with water.

I confess that I make it increasingly difficult to identify with this hierarchy, also because someone, our bleating of “sheep without a shepherd”, It does not care anything!

A prayer for you who carried the good fight.

Cordially

Carlo D.P.

Dear Carlo,

Thank you for submitting a bid for The island of Patmos and thank you for having touched in a few lines the great “sore”. Many, including many of our good faithful, really they think that we have the guts with gold thanks to the fantastic dell'8X1000 funds, as well as due to the deposits of the Vatican Bank that would be more consistent than those of the United Arab. Others are convinced that the Catholic Church is the richest institution in the world, suffice to say that in an international blog much later an economist wrote that the Vatican owns the richest gold deposits in the world (!?). In response, I ran for this subject to the premium hoax of the year, but especially I invited other economists, they were strictly non-Catholics, to disprove its absurd claim.

The reality that many - including faithful - often ignore or do not want to see, It is that our salary is EUR 850 Euros per month and that the priests who have no parish duties, and who do not live in the rectory of a parish church and who have other kinds of revenue, if they were not supported by their families would be starving. People ignore that for years the revenue of 8×1000 It continues to fall, so are the deals, having many faithful gathered and the wish of the one who dreams of a "poor Church for the poor". This is why, a couple of years ago, turning to many pastors who have a hard time paying the bills of light and others who, if they had the widowed mother pensioner who goes shopping with his board, They would have serious difficulties of survival, I told him to send the bills of supplies to be paid directly to the Martha House Sancthae, writing the reason: "Bill, a poor priest for the Church of the poor" [see article WHO].

To this we can add that to the priest, in principle, not from, It asks until he is able to assist, fulfill, comfort, to help … at any time and at any time. And then, whether in old age and disease, the priest needs a glass of water, difficult to find someone who brings him if he has no money to pay for the service. This is why, the Italian Episcopal Conference, He decided in the past to cover the priests with a health insurance policy, after numerous and repeated cases of priests who died in poverty in some geriatric ward, abandoned first by their brethren and the army of people to whom they had spent a lifetime doing good.

And yet, these realities, through the fortress of faith are transformed into true gifts of grace that lead us to the true theological identification, mystical and eschatological with the Word of God made Man, who knew and paid the ingratitude of mankind until his sacrifice. Indeed, the famous expression of the Blessed Apostle Paul …

.

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. This life in the flesh, I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, Christ died for nothing [Maybe 2, 20-21]

.

… It is not a nursery rhyme, but the essence of our priestly vocation, which is based on generosity and on the principle "all give, demanding anything and expect nothing in return ".

.

The faithful devotees with free faith always ready on the mouth but with snakes coiled around the wallet inside the pockets, who do not support the priests who live according to these principles and their apostolic works, They will respond to time and place to God Almighty.

If in fact tens of thousands of people benefit from our hard apostolic work, but at the same time we then find ourselves in difficulty to cover the costs for work free the amor Dei, it means that something is not working, but not us, who have always given everything the best that we could offer, but in how many benefit of all without ever wondering: and I, maybe I should not even offer a little support to those shown in the facts that they have given their lives in the service of Christi fideles ?
