The Best Religious Order and Poverty

Today's class discussed two questions from Thomas' Summa Theologiae, on The Best Religious Order and Poverty.  Students are asked, what was most striking to you about this week's readings?

A religious order's merits are not based on their austerity, austerity is a means to perfection.

Our Lord did not forbid all care, but only such as is excessive and hurtful.

I need to reconsider my definition of hospitality.

Religious are called to pay attention to their affections and the emphasis they place upon things and the people in their life.
