“What a tremendous blessing! You have come into our life just in time to defend our faith. We are growing from your great work. God bless you all.”
~ Beth, Boston, Massachusetts
"Great is poverty, but greater is obedience."
~ Pope John XXII, in his Bull "Quorumdam exigit" (1317); urging a group of separatist friars who engaged in extreme asceticism to follow the Faith (e.g., Romans 13:1-2) and obey their leaders (from the article "Spirituals")
