To the modern mind, the concept of poverty is often confused with destitution. But destitution emphatically is not the Gospel ideal. A love-filled sharing frugality is the message, and Happy Are You Poor explains the meaning of this beatitude lived and taught by Jesus himself. But isn't simplicity in lifestyle meant only for nuns and priests? Are not all of us to enjoy the goodness and beauties of our magnificent creation? Are parents to be frugal with the children they love so much?

The renowned spiritual writer Dubay gives surprising replies to these questions. He explains how material things are like extensions of our persons and thus of our love. If everyone lived this love there would be no destitution.

After presenting the richness of the Gospel message, more beautiful than any other world view, he explains how Gospel frugality is lived in each state of life.

Editorial Reviews

“Father Dubay, an outstanding spiritual writer, has taken on the thorny problem of poverty and how it really relates to Christians. With his usual spiritual acumen Father Dubay looks at this question and gives every person something serious to think about regarding personal poverty, a value that speaks to us on every page of the Gospel.” 
Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, Author, Arise from Darkness

“Who does not want to be happy, enjoy a simple life, and revel in spiritual freedom? Fr. Dubay explains persuasively how we, through our blessed spiritual poverty, can detach ourselves from material goods and open ourselves to that source of lasting joy.” 
Donald DeMarco, Author, The Heart of Virtue
