Storyboard Text

  • Rummage Sale Today
  • Mark's story of the rich young man shouldn't be taken literally. The point isn't for you to give up your property but to change your notion of wealth. Material resources are needed to fulfill your social responsibility.
  • Those monks should be sharing their wealth with the poor, being faithful stewards of what belongs to God.
  • You're taking the green a little far, aren't you Basil?
  • How can these wretched evil people 'share' their possessions with the poor when they are already stealing from them?1
  • See, Clement! I told you so.
  • Clement of Alexandria visits St. Whittleby's, where the monks are having a rummage sale
  • But Catherine, how can these monks share their resources with the poor if they were to just give them chalices and expensive artwork?
  • Show them the money!
  • Basil of Caesarea stops by to join in the fun
  •  These things have been lent to them by God; they are not theirs to keep. Saint Augustine made it clear that the Lord made the rich so they could find help in the poor.
  • We need only be faithful stewards of what belongs to God, Clement. If the monks give money to the poor, they are investing in eternal treasure.
  • Catherine of Siena hears of the sale 1. Wogaman, J. Philip. Christian ethics: a historical introduction. (73)
  • So we agree... the point is that material resources like money are necessary to provide for those among us who are less fortunate. If we focus too much on wealth, we are separated from God's kingdom.
  • Clement, Basil, and Catherine agree to disagree
