    I just finished reading statements made by a Mr. Kenneth Langone, the billionaire owner of Home Depot. His statements were critical of Pope Francis`s many appeals to the rich elite of this world to help the poor with their God-given gift of wealth. He even threatened that if the pope continues his rhetoric, the rich would no longer give to charities that help the poor. I feel sorry for Mr Langone and hope that everyone who reads this letter will pray for him. I feel this way because of two verses in Luke, Chapter 6: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours.” And the second verse: “But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.” I hope that someday Mr. Langone will realize that you can’t take your billions with you when your time on this earth ends, for his sake.
