Thought for the Day – 13 November – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
Almsgiving and Simplicity
“There are others who give generously but are anxious to make a good appearance before their fellowmen.
It is of these that it has been written “they have received their reward.” (Mt 6:2).
We should give with holy simplicity in the manner indicated in the Gospel.
“When thou givest alms, do not let thy left hand know what thy right hand is doing.” (Mt 6:3).
Such unostentation generosity, is more pleasing to the poor than the gift itself.”
