Rich And Poor

Today's Maurin

Afraid of the poor who don’t like to get poorer, the rich who like to get richer turn to the State for protection.

But the State is not only the State of the rich it is also the State of the poor who don’t like to get poorer.

So the State sometimes chooses to help the many poor who don’t like to get poorer, at the expense of the few rich who like to get richer.

Dissatisfied with the State, the rich who like to get richer turn to the Church to save them from the poor who don’t like to get poorer.

But the Church can only tell the rich who like to get richer: “Woe to you rich who like to get richer, if you don’t help the poor who don’t like to get poorer.”
