” Experience has taught me that the simple mud hut with a thatched roof, with no furniture and no conveniences, is sufficient for all basic human needs and can bring more peace and joy than many of the houses of the rich.
I thus began to understand the meaning of the words of the Gospel : ‘ Blessed are the poor, blessed are you that mourn, blessed are you that are hungry. ‘ The poor of India suffer and go hungry, but they have a blessing on their lives which the Western world has lost. ”
Father Bede Griffiths
