We call upon each one to embrace poverty. –Saint Angela Merici
What has striving to live the vow of poverty taught me? Over the years I have deepened my desire to be totally dependent on God for all my needs. In today’s society it is a challenge to not get caught up in consuming and greed. As I observe my sisters in community, I am inspired and encouraged to simplify my life. The fruit of this endeavor results in a genuine peace of enjoying the fruits of this surrender.
