April 9 – St. John the Almsgiver
St. John the Almsgiver gave so much and with so much generosity that some warned him that among those who were begging were many vagrants and delinquents. He responded that he preferred to be wrong a thousand times rather than offend the law of charity. And the miracle was that his box was never empty.
How generous are you? Does it cost you to give? Do you think at times that, in the end, people who ask do not deserve it?
