O Blessed Poverty

O blessed poverty, Who bestows eternal riches,
On those who love and embrace her!
O holy poverty, God promises,
The kingdom of heaven.
And, in fact, offers eternal glory
And a blessed life to those who possess and desire you!
St. Clare of Assisi

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9
