One of the lessons we’re learning during the pandemic is how to “do without.” There are so many things that we would love to be doing that we are simply unable to do right now. And yet, doing without is a spiritual virtue. So why not turn it up a notch and find some more things you can do without? In today’s episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we look at cleaning out our closets and drawers to pack up clothes for those in need, which is a corporal work of mercy.
To learn more about the virtue of doing without, check out the following:

Love this pop-up catechesis message about generosity, simplicity and less clutter (literally and spiritually!
Michele, our lives are way too cluttered, materially and spiritually!
