So Many Injustices You Commit

The bread which you do not use is the bread of the hungry;
The garment hanging in your wardrobe is the garment of him who is naked;
The shoes that you do not wear are the shoes of the one who is barefoot;
The money that you keep locked away is the money of the poor;
The acts of charity that you do not perform are so many injustices that you commit.

St. Basil the Great

This is a great quotation. I heard it before but forgot who said it. I think I'll post this in a post of mine some time soon. Thanks for all of your great quotations.

Also, I remember reading about a website that rated the Top 100 Catholic Quotations of all time. If you would like the link just let me know.
