Patristic Quote of the Day

For to this servant are they like, who have money, and give not to the needy. For you too are steward of your own possessions, not less than he who dispenses the alms of the church. As then he has not a right to squander at random and at hazard the things given by you for the poor, since they were given for the maintenance of the poor; even so neither may you squander your own. -- St. John Chrysostom, Homily 77 on St. Matthew
