Why should a man, who is truly one with Christ, be concerned to accumulate a few and uncertain material goods, worrying over them, when he knows that in Christ he has all things? If there is anything that he needs in order to achieve his supernatural end, the only thing he considers his true treasure, he knows that Christ will provide for it, thus avoiding anxieties and troubles. This belief makes him appreciate Christ’s words about the blessedness of that poverty to which was promised the kingdom of heaven.

Ibid. p. 147
