There is still a strong belief among Roman Catholics in Trinidad and Tobago that you can buy your way into heaven. But God doesn’t deal in cash, only things creditable in the way you live your life. Good works, charity, visiting the sick, feeding the hungry and helping the poor are foolproof ways of making that trip to the Kingdom of God.
There are many people in this country who still hold on to the fact that if you give to the Church, money for harvests, funds for those very special occasions like church renovations it will go a long way to ensuring that your passage into Heaven is a sure thing.
We are all blessed with special talents and skills and the Church on earth will always have use for these kinds of people—good leaders, plumbers, masons, painters, architects and the list is much longer. These are some of the skills which the local Church is longing to have, but find it so difficult to come by on many occasions.
