Bishop on Poverty

What's So Great about Being Poor?
by Bishop Emil Wcela
If being poor and hungry is so much to be desired, why do our parishes collect and distribute food, or provide clothes from their thrift shops, or help with rent payments?

That was a very good article, but the Fr. Dubay book, Happy are you Poor is much, much better. He explains that gospel poverty IS to be desired, but there is a distinction between such poverty and destitution. Most of us are not called to be destitute, but we are all called not to waste the resources God has given us since what is extra of ours belongs to our brothers and sisters who have less.
