“If a man in poor circumstances becomes a monk, he should not think that he is doing the same work as he did before, if in fact he has made the passage from a love of increasing his private possessions by even a little to the charity of the common life, in which he no longer looks to his own interests but to those of Jesus Christ. He has passed into the fellowship of those who have one soul and one heart intent on God, among whom no one calls anything his own but everything is held in common.”
