Voluntary Poverty

‎”Rich by nature, O Christ, Thou has by thine own choice become poor; and Thou who fills every living thing with plenteousness has willingly gone hungry. I hunger for thy grace, O Word of God: satisfy me and make me a partaker at thy table in the Age to come.” [April 12, Tues 6th Wk in Lent, Matins Canon, Ode 2]
