The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter Fifty Five: The Ninth Law: Controlling Luxury and Harmful Expenses

For those who wish to live up to the profession of piety and the worship of God and who put all their hope in the living God clearly ought to manifest a pleasing worship of God, glorify the holy name of God, propagate and adorn his Kingdom, even in dress, even in housing, even in food, drink, care of the body, in all corporal matters and activities, and in such a way as to declare themselves in these matters also “crucified to the world, and the world to them,” and to be abhorrent of all glory which does not consist “in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ”.
