ASK FATHER: Material support to groups and expecting nothing in return
From a reader…
First, thank you for everything that you do in Our Lord’s Vineyard.
Your website is greatly beneficial for myself and countless others.
I was wondering, could one’s tithing count towards purchasing items made by monks or nun, i.e. the Benedictines of Norcia’s heavenly birra nursia & the ever invigorating Mystic Monk coffee; or would one need to ensure that tithing only goes *strictly* towards benefitting the Church, without getting anything in return?
I am glad you are trying to be diligent concerning our obligation to give material support to the Church. This is one of the Commadments of the Church and
