Poverty is our Greatest Wealth
How we live and how we give determines the blessedness of our lives, both here and in the world to come.
Saint John Chrysostom’s brilliant eloquence made such a profound impression that he was often interrupted by the thunderous applause of his congregation. Often called the “Preacher of Mercy,” the “Illuminated Eye of Repentance,” and, quite simply, the greatest expositor of the Scriptures who ever lived, his homilies on the Gospel Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus are some of his most fiery and grace-filled sermons. They showcase the saint’s favorite theme of the necessity for all Christians to live in compassion and brotherly love, always bestowing spiritual and material alms on everyone in need.
