WEALTH




PRIVATE PROPERTY

We can debate on this topic forever. But then we are not interested in what I think or what you think but on what the first Christians did that led them to virtue and possessed of a burning faith. "They sold their houses and farms and freely offered all they had to the apostles for them to distribute to the poor." This way, they acquired heavenly houses and crowns. 

"They were of one mind and soul. They had no differences between them nor did they think of anything as their own; but they held all their goods in common." This is the way to be born again as a child of God. For whatever is of God is common to all. No one is excluded from His generosity and gifts. The day and its light, the rain and the moisture, and the wind belong to God and are shared by all.

So, Christian soul, be like God and share your goods. 

 St. Cyprian
