“’Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.’ The Lord taught by way of example that the glory of human ambition must be left behind when he said, ‘The Lord your God shall you adore and him only shall you serve.’… Nothing belongs to anyone as being properly one’s own, but all have the same things by the gift of a single parent.”
(St Hilary of Potiers, ‘On Matthew’)
