Cardinal-Keith-OBrien ... He DID go on to say that we might just settle for a 'little less', as a result, and perhaps we will develop and understand REAL poverty (I think you will find he incudes himself in there)
Easy for Cardinal OBrien to say Davy. What would he
understand about REAL poverty
In settling for a little less, we can find a bit more, for those who are in need
I'll go along with that Davy. Want my address? All donations gratefully accepted.
I'm sure you would all agree, the real spirit of christmas, has nothing at all to do with being able to save up your benefits, in order to afford the latest x box, or nintendo, for the kids?
Want to tell that to your kids?
(I do not think Jesus was born in a stable ... for nothing)
Joseph was a carpenter (not a chippy) and therefore a tradesman of good standing. Had he been able to find accommodation at an Inn then he could well have afforded a good
room there. There was simply No Vacancy
You can not deny it was a different world back then - where people often faced the LACK of something, with a smile,
I can imagine that you really believe that Davy but the reality was somewhat different.
SHARING was endemic, to our society then ... sharing a cup of sugar for example
Borrowing a cup of sugar is one thing, having to share a cup of sugar is a sad state for people to be in.
