Possessing wealth, lacking power

“Then Peter said, Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”  Acts 3:6
F. F. Bruce“According to Cornelius a Lapide, Thomas Aquinas once called on Pope Innocent II when the latter was counting out a large sum of money.
“‘You see, Thomas,’ said the Pope, ‘the church can no longer say, ‘Silver and gold have I none.'”
“‘True, holy father,’ was the reply; ‘neither can she now say, ‘Rise and walk.'”
