Many rich and powerful people would pay handsomely to see the Lord or His Most Pure Mother; but God isn’t to be summoned by riches, but rather by a ‘humble and contrite heart’. The poorest of people can be humble and come to know God. It needs neither money nor reputation to come to know God, only humility.
