Wonders they say never end. With God, nothing is impossible.
These sayings were brought to bear when an atheist surprised the world by donating a whooping sum of twenty two million, five hundred thousand dollars($22.5 million) to Catholic Education.
The record breaking gift was given to the Archdiocese of New York by a self-styled atheist Robert Wilson to provide educational scholarships for inner-city children.
The Cardinal Archbishop of New York, Edward Cardinal Egan has expressed his gratitude for such a donation. According to him, it is a historic and far-sighted support from Mr. Wilson for the education and future well-being of our neediest children in the archdiocese.
He was filled with happiness that Mr. Wilson donated the money to his Scholarship programme, which he started in the Archdiocese in 2005 to aid disadvantaged students.
Mr. Wilson fielding in question to press men from Bloomberg said he owes the tribute to Catholic Church and not even to God since as an atheist he does not believe in God. He rather believes in the catholic church for her contributions to development of the world.
"Lets face it, without the Roman Catholic Church, there would be no Western civilisation", Wilson Said,"Shunning religious organisation would be abhorrent"he added.
Wilson, 80, therefore said, it was a chance for a very modest amount of money to get kids out of lousy school system and into a good school system, adding that he has no problem and will not grow tired of giving money to fund Catholic schools.
