Inability to repay you

“Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;  blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” (LK 14: 13-14)

When we hear “inability to repay you, “probably we think about our Program’s subject #3—the gift of self. The sign of a true gift of self is in our freedom from any expectations—the gift totally unconditional, which makes it free, creative, and joyful. When our gifts are an “investment” for future benefits (with an expectation of very high ROI*), we are truly harmonizing our egoisms. 

“If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
