Optional Memorial of St. Casimir

So long as we strive for earthly possessions, we shall forever be tempted by sin and wickedness. Only when we know the struggles of poverty in our bodies shall our souls be rewarded with riches beyond compare in the kingdom of heaven. Give us the strength to shun the luxuries of the world Lord, for they will only drag us further away from paradise. Amen.
