A lifestyle of cheerful, voluntary poverty or simplicity in order to identify with Jesus and the poor
The Charism of Voluntary Poverty is defined as being ‘A lifestyle of cheerful, voluntary poverty or simplicity in order to identify with Jesus and the poor.’ I have always felt drawn to live amongst the poor in order to reach out to them with God’s love. When we lived in the Midlands our church was in a very poor area, yet my husband and I deliberately chose to live close to the church in order to show God’s love the surrounding community.
