St. Paul of the Cross and The Minimalists

Three hundred years ago, St. Paul of the Cross told us of the importance of living simply:

“…together with perfect observance of his evangelical counsels, especially by total detachment from all created things with the perfect practice of holy poverty, so essential for the observance of the other counsels.” (Letters of St. Paul of the Cross, Vol 1, p5)

In today’s TEDxWhitefish talk Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus put the same idea in contemporary language. After watching this video, I signed up to follow their blog, The minimalist.

We are a community of laymen and laywomen who, with vowed Passionists, seek to share in the charism of St. Paul of the Cross through prayer, ongoing spiritual formation, and proclamation of the message of Christ Crucified.
