"Our culture has a propensity for stuffing too much 'stuff' into our homes, which only causes clutter and chaos--subtly deadening our spirit as we seek after earthly possessions. Conversely, if your home is bright, open, airy, and uncluttered, so will be your soul. Therefore, as we prepare for the upcoming Great Fast, take time to put your home in order, both figuratively and literally, keeping in mind what St. Ambrose of Optima taught, 'To live simply is best'."
