Catholic Economics 101 - It's Not Your Money

We hear much debate about taxes and tax cuts, about "the rich" paying their fair share, or the statement that, "it's my money." Without getting into the debate over how much tax we should each pay, keeping in mind that forced restribution of wealth is not a Catholic social teaching, it would be helpful if we all remembered this principle from the prayer of St. Ignatius and used our resources accordingly.
All that I am and all that I possess You have given me. I surrender it all to You to be disposed of according to Your will.
