During today’s general audience in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis spoke spontaneously about the importance to clear the clutter of our hearts during this Holy Week. He gives the comparison of regularly cleaning out our closets and giving away to the poor the things we no longer need or use. Similarly, there are useless things in our hearts we need to clear away to return to a simple and true relationship with Jesus.

I invite you to watch the video below. You can go directly to the 31:00 mark for the specific remarks I mention above, or benefit by listening to his whole address. I also include here a link to his full address.

Blessed Holy Week!
