Too taboo to discuss in public, but central to many private conversations, money and the power it has over us is always on our minds. In MONEY AS SACRAMENT, Adele Azar-Rucquoi examines how money affects women's outlook on life, relationships, confidence, independence, and inner peace. As a former nun who grew up running the cash register at her immigrant father's grocery, the wife of a formerly homeless man, and the unsuspecting heir to a substantial inheritance later in life, Azar-Rucquoi's defining life experiences have transformed how she relates to money and helped her develop keen perspective and uncommon wisdom on how money impacts lives. In MONEY AS SACRAMENT, Azar-Rucquoi looks at how women are deeply conflicted by wealth—or the lack thereof—and encourages us to recognize its inherently multifaceted meaning. In this thoughtful and provocative collection of 50 stories about women who grapple with such issues, Azar-Rucquoi inspires us all to finally make peace with the mighty dollar. • Women make approximately 90 percent of their family's money-based decisions.• Women have a 70 percent chance of being responsible for their own financial matters, and an 80 percent chance of being responsible for someone's else financial matters.
"I have been deeply shaped, conditioned, and blessed by a unique relationship with money. My life-defining experiences have emerged as the central pieces in my spiritual puzzle: those years working the register in a grocery store, then as a nun in a convent followed by lean seasons of church service, and then falling into my parents' ample inheritance and living off it. Looking back, I am amazed by how my confusion at each juncture served to shape my authority on the subject of money. In these days of intense commerce, as banks speak real time, stock brokers trade at light speed, and families are caught up in their own high-speed spending cycles, I believe we are desperate to locate the meaning of it all. Where's the spirit in all this currency, in all this exchange, and what is it telling us? For me, money had come to have that distinct coldness of the enemy. Did others see it the same? I longed to know if other women struggled as much with the meaning of money as I did. I wanted to know how they handled it, how they talked about it, and how they shared it with their families and communities. Seeking these answers, I began interviewing women from all walks of life—women with and without money. This book is the culmination of these very personal conversations and the enlightenment they brought me. No more do I think of money as a worldly possession, but rather, as a synthesis of matter, spirit, and exchange." —From the Introduction
