Giving what is theirs

“Not to enable the poor to share in our goods is to steal from them and deprive them of life” (Chrysostom).

“When we attend to the needs of those in want, we give them what is theirs, not ours” (Gregory the Great).

—Cited in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (New York: Doubleday, 1994), pp. 647-48.
