Commentary on the Gospel of

Fr. JCR Garcia Paredes


When someone leaves his or her wealth in order to follow Christ we call that “religious poverty.”  When someone gives up the freedom to have a family we call that “celibacy.”  By putting them in one sentence, Jesus is telling us that celibacy is a form of poverty.  It is a form of poverty that really pinches.  Be nice to a poor man or a poor woman today!
