Canticle of Powerful Poverty

Wealth has always given people a false sense of power. Jesus however taught us what true power is all about. It is when we leave our “wealth” behind and personally enter the world of the poor that one becomes rich. "For you know the gracious act of Our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake He became poor although He was rich, so that by His poverty you might become rich." 2 Corinthians 8:9

Canticle of Powerful Poverty

[Jesus] Who, though he was in the form of God,
did not count equality with God
a thing to be grasped at,

But rather emptied himself,
taking the form of a slave,
being born in the likeness of men.

And being found in human form,
he humbled himself by becoming obedient,
to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Therefore God has highly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name
that is above every name.

So that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow, in heaven
and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is LORD,
to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:6-11
