Giving Tuesday and the Gospel value of charity
Since 2012, Giving Tuesday has become the world’s largest giving movement. At the heart of this movement is what Catholics recognize as the Gospel value of charity. “Charity unites love of God with love of neighbor; it bridges Old and New Testaments; it provides the foundation for human morality; it spans all time and all peoples.” (In All Things Charity: A Pastoral Challenge for the New Millennium, USCCB) As a people who recognize that all we have as well as who we are comes from a God of bountiful love, generosity of spirit, of time, and of material goods is an integral part of our Catholic faith and, when practiced, has the ability to bring people together, promote human dignity, and build a better society.
