By Jacqueline Burkepile – Jun 19, 2022
Why is living simply important?
On this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, podcast hosts John Heinen and Sam Guzman discuss rejecting worldly consumerism.
“It is by rejecting consumerism and by turning away from more stuff that we open ourselves up to actually serve God’s will in our lives,” the podcast description states.
“Our earthly possessions call to us–what conversations are we allowing them to have with us?”
The guys discuss these topics:
- The “scarcity principle” that manipulates us
- Self-control of your mind
- Complete abandonment to God’s providence
