I know of no saint who lived a personally elegant life-style. Their genuineness shone through their selfless lives, their selfless frugality.
He works a transformation only in those who are transformable. He fills only the empty.
People, he says, are choked with the cares, the wealth and the pleasures of life, and they fail to come to fullness.
Lovers of pleasure may be always learning but they cannot reach the truth and so falsify the faith.
