crucifixion-iconSt. Paul the Apostle

For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

St. Paul of the Cross

I say to you with all surety that the way in which the Highest Good God continues to have you walk is the same way chosen by the uncreated wisdom and truth of Christ our Lord, and since he is infinitely rich and the giver of all the goods of nature, of grace and glory, he nonetheless made himself poor for us as Saint Paul tells us. He was born, lived, and died naked of all things and always poor. (To Teresa Daneo 1755)
