“Those who worry too much about the alms that they are likely to be given will find that sooner or later this bad habit will lead them to go and ask for something which they do not need, and perhaps from someone who needs it more than they do. Such a person would gain rather than lose by giving it us but we should certainly be worse off for having it”. St. Teresa of Avila – The Way of Perfection

Do you ask from the people who have less than you do?
Are you able to wait for God to provide for your sustainment?
Are you blessed by what you give to others?
“Poverty is good and contains within itself all the good things in the world. It is a great domain – I mean that he who cares nothing for the good things of the world has dominion over them all”. St. Teresa of Avila – The Way of Perfection
Do you think poverty is good?
Would poverty be good for you?
Why does St. Teresa say that it is good for us?
And why does she say that the person who cares nothing for the good things has dominion over them?
