The Logic of Riches Below and Riches Above

Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange

Whereas the unbridled search for material goods profoundly divides men, the quest for spiritual goods unites them. It unites us so much the more closely, the more we seek these superior goods. And we even possess God so much the more, the more we give Him to others. When we give away money, we no longer possess it; when, on the contrary, we give God to souls, we do not lose Him; rather we possess Him more. And should we refuse to give Him to a person who ask for Him, we would lose Him.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
