Manage Your Money God’s Way - In Honor of World Day for Consecrated Life Part 2

Manage Your Money God’s Way - In Honor of World Day for Consecrated Life Part 2

February 10, 2021

In honor of the World Day for Consecrated Life, we are replaying the second part of an interview with Anne Folan. Anne discusses the toll student loan debt is taking on vocations, as well as possible solutions to this crisis. Anne Folan is a member of the Board of Directors of the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations, a nonprofit Catholic organization that makes grants for student loan debt relief for young men and women with vocations to religious life. 

45 million Americans owe student loan debt, collectively owing more than $1.5 trillion dollars. Two out of every three college graduates will graduate with a student debt load averaging over $30,000. For individuals discerning a call to religious life, student loan debt can create a tremendous obstacle they didn't consider when pursuing their college degrees because religious communities usually don't allow a person with unresolved debts to enter formation.

Manage Your Money God’s Way - Financial Fasting

Manage Your Money God’s Way - Financial Fasting

December 24, 2020

At the end of December, we all tend to feel a bit “spent”. In this episode, Caitlyn and Diana talk about a financial fast. Fasting is most commonly associated with abstention from food, although it can also take the form of giving up other comforts. Starting on January 1st, Caitlyn and Diana encourage our listeners to participate in a fast to both help the holiday spending exhaustion and grow in prayer.

The steps to this fast include 1. Identify your needs. 2. Keep track of all your spending. 3. Focus on contentment. 4. Grow in prayer.

Will you be joining Caitlyn and Diana on this fast? Email us at Podcast@CompassCatholic.org or follow the Compass Catholic Facebook page. We’d love to hear your personal financial fasting story!

 

Episode Guiding Principle:

 

Ezra 8:21

Then I proclaimed a fast, there by the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God to seek from him a safe journey for ourselves, our children, and all our possessions.

Ezra 8:23

So we fasted, seeking this from our God, and it was granted.
