Money is either a starting point or a stumbling block to Spiritual Growth, and can subtly control us beyond our understanding.  Our attitude toward money can incredibly affect our relationships with God, family and friends, for if we are not generous with money we are not generous of heart.  I is essential that the Church helps us to develop a healthy relationship with money, because it can extend its tentacles deep into relationships.

Dynamic Catholics, about 7 percent in a typical Catholic parish, contribute approximately 80 percent of the parish budget, generally have a spiritual approach with money, a vibrant spiritual life and a deep relationship with God.

Jesus spoke about money because He realized money is either an opportunity or an obstacle to spiritual growth.  Catholics grow in generosity when they understand the spirituality of money and integrate it with their life.
