Vow of Poverty, Not Destitution

Blog Published: August 18, 2014

Poverty? That's not good at all, right? The word itself often calls to mind the reality of destitution that many people in our own country and indeed our very own neighborhood face every single day -- living without sufficient resources. But the word poverty is also one that is an important part of our lives as Catholic sisters and nuns -- as well as religious brothers, monks, and friars.

How do you balance the vow of poverty with the necessities for everyday life?

Podcast Recorded: March 6, 2014

In this Random Nun Clip, we talk with Sister Jill and Sister Cathy about the vow of poverty in relation to simplicity and the common life. Hear the full podcast at AS153.
