QUOTATION: Charity and Poverty

Pope Francis
We would do well to ask ourselves what we can give up in order to help and enrich others by our own poverty. Let us not forget that real poverty hurts: no self-denial is real without this dimension of penance. I distrust a charity that costs nothing and does not hurt.

--Pope Francis Lenten message 2014, December 26, 2013.
