New Choices Video
In the latest episode of Choices, Fr. Tateos Abdalian considers the issue of poverty, and its meaning in the Gospel. Christ's preaching made people re-evaluate the "spiritual" significance of impoverishment. Surrounded by a world of material poverty, Christ drew attention to man's poverty of soul, as well.
It's a lesson that still resonates with people today. Are you rich or poor? Consider that question as you watch "Poor in Spirit."
