Poverty of Spirit

Jesus chose for himself a life of poverty and he practiced this virtue throughout his earthly life, in total detachment and in the most perfect way. He also said “blessed are the poor,” promising them heavenly wealth. Poverty must be something very precious if the Son of God himself chose it…. (VPC116)
