Loving Money More Than People

The person who loves money more than other people is the cause of some people’s poverty. Their misery is the mark of humanity’s sin - everyone’s sin. This is why it is hopeless to try to get rid of poverty by economic means. We can hope for no modification in the human condition unless we begin believing in God’s love. This is the only possible way to break the dramatic chain of oppression and misery in which we live.
