In fiscal 2012, lottery sales in the United States averaged approximately $250 per person. Forty-three states and the District of Columbia accounted for that $78 billion in sales. It was in March 2012 that the largest prize to date ($656 million) was split between three winners. While it is clear that many people enjoy playing the lottery recreationally, a question that is often asked is, "What does someone do with all that money?" Of course, that particular problem has not seemed to bother those who play regularly. Indeed, the largest jackpots, far from being a deterrent, end up provoking an even greater number of players, who seem intent on turning a single dollar into a large fortune. The Gospel this weekend offers a perspective on the material world. While possessions are needed, Jesus says, "One's life does not consist of possessions" (Lk 12:15). This comment by Jesus is not something new to any of us. We have heard this all before. But we also know that there is wisdom in storing up for ourselves. As a matter of fact, saving for the future is an act of personal responsibility. We are constantly told to save for retirement, to have a rainy-day fund, to set aside something for a vacation instead of going into debt to take one. All of these actions are so we don't become overly dependent on the social fabric and cause an undue burden on others. There is a difference between having a sufficiency and having an excess. When our desire for an excess outstrips our reasonableness and our need, then we are flirting with greed, the very thing that the Gospel warns against. Yes, we may work hard, and save for the future. We may even win the lottery. But when we have more than we need the Lord expects that we use it not just for ourselves but also for others. What we do with the blessings we have makes all the difference.

I attend a poorer parish, which buys elaborate flowers every week and recently purchased some artwork and statues. Shouldn't they be using that money to help feed and shelter the poor? I remember working in a church in a very poor section of the city. It was in May and the church was beautifully decorated with flowers, banners, and a fountain. Someone raised the exact objection you did, and one of the parishioners responded, "Poor people need food for the soul and spirit too. The decorations do more than beautify the church; they help refresh our minds because in the midst of decay they bring life." The church is more than a tool for redistribution of social assets. Nourishing the soul with art, music, and beauty deepens our appreciation for the creative ability God gives us and helps open us to the awesome power and beauty of God. Far from a waste of money, art directs our minds, uplifts our spirits, and honors the Creator. Even when the audience is poor, we can all be enriched through beauty and grace. Bread allows us to survive, but art and culture allow us to thrive. The church, as steward of the community's resources, has to choose where it can do the most good for the greatest number of people. Art and culture seem to be a good choice.

JOHN PINO NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO MAKE A GIFT FROM YOUR IRA!
For those who would like to keep in touch with John Pino, the seminarian that was with us this summer, his address is: John Pino Pontifical North American College 00120 Vatican City State Europe
Congress passed legislation that IRA owners who are 70½ or older have the opportunity until December 31, 2013 to make qualified charitable distribution direct from their accounts to organizations such as St. Bernadette Church or St. Joseph Church, up to a maximum of $100,000. Gifts count toward meeting the minimum IRA distributions required and thus can reduce donors’ taxable income without the need to claim an itemized deduction. Because this must be handled in a certain way, anyone interested in doing this is encouraged to seek the advice of their own professional adviser before acting.
His email address is email@example.com
THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY FRIED CHICKEN DINNER AT ST. BERNADETTE’S
APPRECIATED STOCK AS A CHARITABLE GIFT One of the most satisfactory ways for a donor to give a gift to a charitable organization, such as St. Bernadette or St. Joseph is to use appreciated stock. Giving stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares that have increased in value (and which the donor has owned for more than one year) provides greater tax benefits to the donor than giving cash. Not only can the donor deduct the full market value of the securities but also they avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation. Because this must be handled in a certain way, anyone interested in doing this is encouraged to call the St Bernadette or St. Joseph office or seek the advice of their own professional adviser before acting.
Let us do the cooking for you, it’s hot enough to stay out of the kitchen. Come out on Friday, August 9th from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. St. Bernadette’s McFadden Hall, 109 W. Main St. (Route 9) Hedgesville, WV, 25427, across from the Town Spring. We are offering Chef Marzullo’s famous fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, rolls, and drinks. Half Chicken for $10.00, On Quarter Chicken for $8.00, Child’s portion $4.00. Desserts $1.00 per slice. Eat in or Carry Out available. For additional information see the flyer in this bulletin or call 304-754-7830 or 304-754-9048. Thanks for your support.
