Margaret Anna Fridays

It's Friday, and it has been a while since I have run an installment of Margaret Anna Fridays, where I share some words of wisdom from the founder of my religious community, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. She was a prolific writer, with more than 200,000 copies of her works in circulation by 1870. This week's installment is from her seminal (and controversial) 1887 book, The Question of Today: Anti-Poverty and Progress. She asks an insightful question, and one which our current Pope seems to be asking us daily:

Which are we to have, the real Christianity taught by Christ Himself, with all its sacrifices, or modern Christianity, which makes the way of life easy for the rich and cruelly hard for the poor? - MF Cusack
