Quote of the day, 28 July: Blessed John Soreth

Do you want to get to heaven? Embrace the baseness of poverty and it will be yours….

It is the love of the poor that establishes kings. Blessed are those who do not chase after those goods for which their possession is tiresome, whose love is defiling, and whose loss is torture…

The kingdom of God is given rather than promised to the poor… All those of good will… leaving all for Christ as He left all for them, follow Him wherever He goes.

Blessed John Soreth
