New Year Resolutions: Living Simply

By Sister Regina Siegfried, ASC

Enough calendar days have turned that those New Year’s resolutions probably have passed along with them by now. What about that decision to simplify and declutter? What does that mean?  Living more simply is the work of the Spirit and of a lifetime.


Most religious women try to live a simple life. However, what is simple for one might not be for another. While a simple lifestyle includes the use of material things, it reaches far more deeply than that. Possessions are necessary for ministry.
