QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“[The poor] come offering their very heart in exchange for food. And yet not only is your hand not stricken with paralysis for taking profits from such misfortune, but you haggle for even more! … Tears do not move you, groans do not soften your heart, but you remain adamant and unbending”
+ St. Basil the Great
