Nov 27 ?? Avarice is a Waste

Ave Maria!

“Man has preset for himself the motive for accumulating material goods, money. He has not yet reached the goal of his desires, so he continues to busy himself. But will he ever get there?…He desires more, always more; he yearns to acquire things ever more quickly and to possess them ever longer. How much fatigue, how many worries and sacrifices, how much good health it has cost him to possess what he has, and how much drudgery still awaits him! And if he happens to get sick? If good fortune turns its back on him? If a thief were to rob him? And then, in the end, death too will come. And then?…He will have to leave everything and go all by himself into eternity.” (SK #995)
