‘What would you do with $100?’

With an early Lent looming on the horizon (Ash Wednesday is just a month away), The Catholic Spirit in St. Paul, Minn., has announced a “Pay It Forward for Lent” contest to encourage good stewardship, just like the New Testament parable of the nobleman who entrusts gold coins to his servants while he is away. Details are here.

Speaking of “pay it forward,” the paper this week also has an example of “play it forward” — an alumnus of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul who, spurred on by the aid he received after Hurricane Katrina, paid it forward by helping a New Orleans Catholic high school basketball team participate in the paper’s Christmas basketball tournament.
