May You have a Poor 2014

Social psychologist Paul Tiff in this TED Talk demonstrates the science of why it is important to choose poverty over riches. St. Paul of the Cross knew why intuitively, as did St. Francis of Assisi and as does Pope Francis today. St. Paul of the Cross spoke of wanting to call his Congregation (Community in common parlance) “The Poor of Jesus” Enjoy this twenty-minute video and see for yourself what you probably know, but if you are like me, need to be reminded of periodically. May you have a poor and compassionate 2014.
