Prophecy for USA
 
Pope brands financial system selfish, short-sighted - "The recent crisis demonstrates how financial activity can at times be completely turned in on itself, lacking any long-term consideration of the common good," he said.
Holy See Fears Rich Countries Becoming Stingy - "The Holy See affirmed that without a broad revision of the financial system, a real solution to the crisis won't be found."
Economic crisis shows why life shouldn't be built on money, pope says - "On sand is built only things we can see and touch: success, career, money.  Apparently they are real, but one day they pass," he said.  He said the banking crisis demonstrated how quickly they can disappear."
Pope Had `Prophecy' of Market Collapse in 1985, Tremonti Says - "German-born Ratzinger in 1985 presented a paper entitled 'Market Economy and Ethics' at a Rome event dedicated to the Church and the economy.  The future pope said a decline in ethics 'can actually cause the laws of the market to collapse.'''

Commentary: One of the easiest ways to budget your money is to place your weekly expenses in  four envelopes (food, allowances, medications, & gasoline expense).  Budget other periodic expenses in your savings & checking accounts and don't take your check book or credit card with you when you shop.  In addition, when deciding where to cut expenses, measure them as to their annual cost.  And most importantly, don't forget to ask the Lord to help you: "Without me, you can do nothing."  Vincent T. Bemowski - Webmaster/Editor
