St. Photios on Riches and Almsgiving

St. Photios the Great ca. 810-893

There is no entrance for you to the gate of the Kingdom of God because the love of money has blocked this for you. If, however, you break down the barrier through love of the poor, living by almsgiving will more quickly make you acceptable. (Letter 37, To Anastasios the Tax-Collector)
