Who is the most Christian? The one who earns millions by being a hard-hearted banker and then gives it all away, or the one who shuns worldly things to work with the poor? The latter, without doubt, for the banker in earning his fortune destroys as many lives as he later saves by giving it all away. It is a zero sum – and worse, for those whose lives he wrecks are not the ones whose lives he saves; their lives remain ruined. The poor man giving his life to serve others only ever does good and tho his account may read many fewer in the positive balance than the banker, it is triumphant because he has no one in his debit balance – unlike the banker whose destruction equals his reparation to humanity. We cannot condemn a man who gives away his fortune but we cannot in any way hold him above the man who earns none and yet devotes his life to others.
