|Previous reflections||The 16 Documents of Vatican II||Resolution|
Based on the 1965 Vatican II document:
THE MINISTRY AND LIFE OF PRIESTS, PRESBYTERORUM ORDINIS - 21
The article speaks about places where "the collection" is not enough to support a priest
of the collection: I've heard of places where the "counters" keep a
bit of the collection to help their families or themselves. I've also seen
places where just one person does the counting....a big temptation.
In many places the uncounted collection is given to "father" to mind....also not a good idea
Best idea: a team of at least two or three highly trusted people to do the counting, preferably straight after Mass.
Jesus, please help people avoid the temptation to steal church money!
