Manage Your Money God’s Way - Learning to Be Content

Manage Your Money God’s Way - Learning to Be Content

July 29, 2020

We aren’t born being content and it seems that our culture tries to make us more and more discontent as we grow older. How many commercials are disguised as TV shows and movies targeting the youngsters in our life to get the stuff they are selling? And keeping up with the neighbors can be a lifetime pursuit for some adults.

 

Learning the secret of contentment can free you from all the pressure to spend money in an effort to acquire more and more stuff. Being content is a conscious learned habit!

 

The Compass Catholic Blog has more on learning the virtue of contentment.

Money Stories - Effect of Student Loan Debt on Vocations Part 5

Money Stories - Effect of Student Loan Debt on Vocations Part 5

July 29, 2020

Sister Ignatia Henneberry, with the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration, had student loan debt when she started discerning religious life. She had faith that her debt would not be a barrier. Due to the generosity of others, including her grandmother and the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations, Sister Ignatia was right. 

Sister Ignatia recently took over the role of Vocations Director with the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration. She's new to her role but she's not naive as to how student loans debt will affect the ability of other young women to say "yes" to their vocation. We were so blessed to have Sister Ignatia share her story as we wrap up this series on student loan debt. 

We challenge you to share at least one of these episodes on the effect of student loan on vocations with a friend or on social media.
