QUOTATION: Jesus' Poverty

St. Robert Bellarmine
When He came into this world, he was born in a stable, and died on a cross. Truly, no one, when born, could have found a more lowly place; nor, dying, a more disgraceful one. And whilst He lived, He was poorer, not only than men, but even than the beasts of the field: for the foxes had holes, and the birds of the air their nests, “but the Son of man had nowhere to lay His head."

--St. Robert Bellarmine, The Eternal Happiness of the Saints
