Let St. Zita inspire you to work towards a peaceful and ordered home.

Today is the feast day of St. Zita, and with spring firmly in the air, it might be the time to address your spring cleaning.

St. Zita started a lifetime of housekeeping at the tender age of 12. For 48 years she stayed with the same family, diligently carrying out her duties. While she was devoted to her work, she also gave a lot of time to caring for the vulnerable. She was so passionate about both her work as a maid and caring for the sick and poor that her impressed employees became close friends with her and allowed her to manage her own schedule.

You might not find cleaning your home as rewarding as this 13th-century patron saint of domestic workers did; however, you could be inspired by her. Consider these compelling reasons to make your home clean and comfortable.
