Our Profits Donated

Our Profits Donated June 20, 2018

While Patheos pays its bloggers for the traffic they generate, the contributors to Vox Nova have agreed that we will continue to be a non-profit blog.  Therefore, all of our royalties (such as they are) are donated to charity.

For this iteration, we have agreed to donate our royalties to Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley (Texas), to support their work with undocumented immigrants and refugees.

From the statement of Pope Francis for the 104th Annual World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2018:

Every stranger who knocks at our door is an opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ, who identifies with the welcomed and rejected strangers of every age (Matthew 25:35-43).  The Lord entrusts to the Church’s motherly love every person forced to leave their homeland in search of a better future.[1]  This solidarity must be concretely expressed at every stage of the migratory experience – from departure through journey to arrival and return.  This is a great responsibility, which the Church intends to share with all believers and men and women of good will, who are called to respond to the many challenges of contemporary migration with generosity, promptness, wisdom and foresight, each according to their own abilities.
