Mexican bishops exhorts Catholics to tithe

.- Bishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago of Leon, Mexico, called on the faithful in his diocese this week to take part in a tithing drive aimed at financing the different apostolic activities in Leon.

In a letter sent to pastors, religious and the laity, Bishop Rabago underscored that “tithing is an obligation and is very different from voluntary contributions of the faithful on Sundays.”

Therefore, he added, “all employed professionals who earn more than the equivalent of two minimum wage jobs should donate one day’s worth of their salary per year, and those who earn less should give as their means permit.”

Bishop Rabago said that “all the funds raised during the drive will be earmarked for pastoral works, parish assistance in marginal areas, construction of new churches, as well as for care of elderly priests and religious.”
