Gus talks about tithing this morning, which is the subject of today's First Reading from the Book of Sirach, which says "Give to the Most High as he has given to you, according to your means." The Biblical standard for tithing is 10% of your income. On average, Catholics give about 1.5%. Periodically, parishes will talk about giving or fundraising during their homilies and Gus asks listeners if the Church talks about giving too much, just right or not enough. Gus hears from a few callers who have withheld their donations entirely because of the clergy sex abuse scandal.
