Readings for today’s Mass
The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common. With great power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all. There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need.
I think the contemporary idea of the “common good” grew out of this earliest model of the Church. I wonder of the framers of the constitution had it in mind when they inserted into the Preamble this phrase: “We the people, in order to. . . promote the general welfare. . .” Is that the common good? It surely seems to suggest the desire that everyone fare well.
