"Dear Lord,

Donate, don't spend

I read the eloquent plea from Father Aloysious Mowe in last Sunday's parish bulletin "JRS urges generosity in the face of despair".

It is a little late for me to be suggesting we ignore the Federal Treasurer's plea to the Australian public to spend for Christmas and to not let Santa down.

But I will suggest that at least for the post Christmas and January period we ignore all the "Spend" pleas and instead donate to the JRS Shelter Project.

And this article in yesterday's SMH makes good reading:
