St. Anthony Quote - We Have Followed You

In a sermon St. Anthony said of God: "For You we have left everything and have become poor. But since You are rich, we have followed You that You might enrich us... We have followed You as the creature follows the Creator, like sons of the Father, as children follow their mother, as the starving their bread, as the sick their doctor, as the weary their bed, as exiles their homeland..." (Sermones, II, p. 484)
