Quiz: What do Catholic Relief Services and Melinda Gates have in common?

Catholic Relief Services (CRS), “the official overseas relief and development agency of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops” has recently given millions to an organization that doles out contraceptives, including abortifacient ‘emergency contraception.’

The most recent CRS annual returns (2010) indicate that the largest CRS grant — $5.3 million — went to CARE, an international “relief and development organization,” that actively promotes and provides contraceptives for women in developing countries, and supports pro-abortion groups and legislation.

According to the 2010 990s, CRS gave $5,380,466 to CARE, which is noted on page 86 of the filing.

The Charles Schultz Philosophy

The Charles Schultz Philosophy… and Now Mine!

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the
‘Peanuts’ comic strip. You don’t have to actually answer the questions.
Just read straight through, and you’ll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?


The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These
are no second-rate achievers; They are the best in their fields. But the
applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades
and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

The lesson:
The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the
most credentials…
the most money…
or the most awards.
They are simply the ones that care the most.

Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life.

‘Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already
tomorrow in Australia .’ Charles Schultz)
