As the Christmas decorations are taken down we may ponder on another year ahead, embarking on new beginnings and resolutions with Jesus as our guide…
I am the New Year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the last twelve months.
All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search it but with more determination.
All the good that you tried for and didn’t achieve is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.
All that you dreamed but didn’t dare to do, all that you hoped but did not will, all the faith that you claimed but did not have – these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of a strong purpose.
I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to Him who said, “Behold, I make all things new”.

A New Year prayer
May this new year be a time of spiritual growth, a time of welcoming your graces and gifts. A time for forgiving freely and unconditionally increasing virtue and goodness for your Glory.
Happy New Year! X
