Why does the Church ask for money?

Why does the Church ask for money?

This is referring to the following passage from the Gospel of John. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, “We are told that Christ and His Apostles had a common purse for the defraying of their expenses. That this information comes to us only incidentally, through the narration of an event bearing no direct relation to it, shows that the Evangelist presumes the reader to take it for granted that there was a common purse for the expenses of Christ and His disciples.” Some thought that since Judas kept the money bag, Jesus had told him, “Buy what we need for the feast,” or to give something to the poor.

Money during Jesus’ ministry All of this brings up the basic question “Why does the Church ask for money?”

The need for money to fund basic expenses was part of Jesus’ ministry with his 12 apostles. Financial abuses and scandals have plagued the Church in modern times, but also in medieval Europe and during other ages of the Church’s existence.

After the ascension of Jesus, the apostles continued this treatment of money. Many early Christians would even sell their homes so that they could give the money to the apostles. Apostles’ handling of money

This single passage highlights the two primary purposes of money the Church possesses: 1. For basic human needs of the clergy (“Buy what we need for the feast”)2. For support of the poor (“Give something to the poor”) John 13:29
