Broke? Never Fear, Saint Matthew is Here!
Worried about your job? No worries! Just pray to Saint Matthew, the Patron Saint of Bankers! If only this really was a joke. Alas it isn’t. A report in today’s edition of the UK Daily Telegraph, Workers worried in recession should pray to patron saint of bankers, says Catholic church, describes how a website, Life4seekers advises people to “turn to Saint Matthew for help” during the economic crisis rather than blaming those in the financial sector who got us into this unholy mess in the first place.
The Roman Catholic Group, Catholic Enquiry Office runs the website. The website targets a young audience who may serve as prime fodder for conversion during these tough economic times. When all else fails, look for divine intervention to solve problems rather than look towards accountability and sound public policy.
