This and that "Let's put little plaques to show we are pious and charitable on everything" don't really seem too kosher... actually Jesus made the exact point to not be ostentatious (doing it for show) about giving (and also about praying). He said to do it in secret and you will receive a reward from God for it in secret. If you do it to receive acclaim from others then you have already received a a return for it. And I know I'm not misinterpreting that... its crystal clear.

And yet I was just on the Antiochian site an hour ago, and they were justifying their Order of Saint Ignatius (giving money) by pointing out that Jesus said to let your light shine. Don't get me wrong, I agree with you, it's just that many see it a different way I guess.

I'll bet I look like a goof.

I thought that verse had to do with general conduct and the light of God within. Obviously you cannot hide that. Though from the impression I get from reading the counsels of Elder Paisios, I think some people take it quite literally with no understanding allegory at all.  Sad

Just to clarifiy a little ...What the Priest is really asking  the faithful is , not to bury there shekels but to put them to good use ,in the vineyard of the Lord...
The ones that chose to give the winning donation are God Parents of the Altar, and Holy Cross and the litija Banner are  guardians  of the Faith in action and not just in words but a active Giving faith...........
