S Benedict: "We have given up everything and followed you"

What will there be for us?

-- Matthew 19: 27-29

"Our" bread is the "one" loaf for the "many." In the Beatitudes "poverty" is the virtue of sharing: it calls us to communicate and share both material and spiritual goods, not by coercion but out of love, so that the abundance of some may remedy the needs of others.

-- CCC 2833

Art: S Benedict by Fra Angelico.
