Maxed out: Spiritual cost of debt
Kym knows exactly what broke feels like.
A few months ago she was out of work and low on hope. When it looked as though she and her two children would be evicted from their California apartment, Kym-a Catholic with multiple sclerosis and no car to get her to her local parish-went online for help.
"Please pray for us," she wrote on a Catholic online bulletin board.
She found a quick and sympathetic response-some of it coming from other Catholics who have had their own close calls with too many bills, not enough cash.
