The greed of money and power could lead us on a path of destruction of deceit and “sacrifice of children and family” for selfish gains of materialistic things.

While having money is a necessity it is also a danger which people must be careful of and deter from changing their values and morals all for the love of money, parish priest Monsignor Christian Pereira said yesterday.

Pereira was at the time delivering the homily at this year’s Palm Sunday service held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help RC church, Harris Promenade, San Fernando.

He said love for money caused much turmoil in society. “Be careful of allowing money to consume you that you begin to sell out your friends and family just because you want to purchase something,” Pereira warned the packed congregation.

He said persons should use Judas as an example of one whom they must not follow.

Judas, one of the 12 disciples, betrayed Jesus by conspiring with chief priests to deliver Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.

“And many of us today are selling out each other and changing our values for money. Two thousand years later it is reflected in society. It shows the danger of money.

There is nothing wrong with money we need money to buy things. But sometimes our need for money becomes so great and we are willing to sacrifice anything until we get what we want.” he said.
