Some of them have posters that tell touching stories: “I am a single mother with two kids, I have no home and live on the street, I ask for help to eat.” Others kneel or use children to call to the conscience, or put on the doors of the churches because their experience tells them that they will receive good tips from charitable faithful.

Praise fidelity

25 July, 2016

   In these times of abandonments and betrayals, we should make a compliment to fidelity and loyalty,faithfulness seems to be unfashionable. The same fashion gives us contrary examples with its frivolity models. Thus, political figures or of the scene, writers or filmmakers, great economists and many others show in their words, in their business and in their life that the committed word is no longer a warranty; neither an oath of eternal love nor written contracts are reliable and we must be careful with the small print and it is sure that you will find reflective justifications to make the contrary to what was promised, as says the known song “we”. “I love you with my soul, I swear that I adore you but on behalf of that love….we must break away”. ¡What a paradox!.

Types of generosity within the family

3 April, 2014

   Generosity could be defined as doing something in favor of others even if it takes efforts to do so. However, sometimes it is not easy to clearly identify such conduct because it depends on the purity of the intention itself and the effort with which the generous action is carried out. It is not the same when a rich man gives away some of his extra money, than when a poor man gives away his only coin. In order to be generous, it is necessary to be conscious about the fact that what is given or done can actually satisfy a need in others. Read the rest of this entry »
