Money, buildings and apostolate
Why has money to be always the crux of all discussions related to the apostolate? Every time there is the council most amount of preparation is preparing the projects and financial requirements. I understand formation houses need it for survival - so do all other communities and centres. But why the hell, for construction and expansion of existing buildings??? The buildings are the bane of our apostolate. We put up a building - saying it is for the mission - and then spend all our energies and time looking after that building. In the meantime, where are the people? Where is the 'mission'?
