      Shopping is better than buying.

      In a world so rife with consumerism and in which the market place of ideas and philosophies is so filled with choices remember this before you buy into anything: Shopping is better than buying!

      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      I have no patience for walking around shopping without a clear idea of what I am shopping for. I don't have the time for that. Not with working two jobs and trying to do regular exercise program

      Not many. Fewer than the digits on one hand.

      Is it important for you to know?

      Are you shopping or buying?
