not belong to you, you will be guilty of theft."

"These symbolize (Proverbs 30:14) the
greedy and usurers whose teeth are swords and knifes which
they use to devour the poor and steal their megger possessions.

children of light to be stupid and believe themselves to
be the prudent ones. Their prudence is their death."
- Saint Anthony of Padua

"Solicitude for material things distracts the soul
and divides it. The devil seizes the divided soul and drags
it to hell."
The following words of Saint Anthony are found in the
Epilogue to his Opus:
"I ask that if you find anything edifying,
anything consoling, anything well presented, that you give
all praise, all glory and all honor to the Blessed Son of
God Jesus Christ. If on the other hand, you find anything
that is ill composed, uninteresting or not to well explained,
you impute and attribute it to my weakness, blindness, and
lack of skill."
In his Sermons, Anthony says:
"The saints are like the stars. In his providence Christ
conceals them in a hidden place that they may not shine
before others when they might wish to do so. Yet they are
always ready to exchange the quiet of contemplation for
the works of mercy as soon as they perceive in their heart
the invitation of Christ."
