September 22. Saint Thomas of Vilanova

When he was six years old, one day he gave away all the chicks in the corral. When his mother asked him where they were, he said: “you did not leave any bread for the poor. I would have given them the hen if they had come back.

They say that, although his family was wealthy, when he was a child, he was often almost naked because he would give his clothes to the poor. As an adult, already an Augustinian friar, he sold even his bed to help the poor and slept on the floor.

Is it hard for you to share what you have? What could you give today?
