A creator of poverty (Saint Nectarios of Pentapolis)

7 Οκτωβρίου 2018

Avarice makes many people unjust, in the hope of acquiring wealth, and it becomes the cause of much evil among people. It’s a passion of the soul that causes a thirst for gold, and that eats away at it no matter how much gold is amassed. Avarice is a master at poverty, because it enriches itself but not those who have it. They are left lacking and, essentially, impoverished.
