|How do you Provide for yourself if you Vow Poverty?|
Like Jesus, we wish to live a life of evangelical poverty. The vow of poverty that we profess proclaims that God is our only real treasure, our inheritance. Our life is marked by simplicity and moderation. By putting all our resources in common, we free ourselves from all attachment to riches so that we may depend entirely upon God.
"All these devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, together with some women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.... They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one's need." Acts 1:14; 2:42-45
