New Year's Eve
New Year's Eve is always a special day. One looks back over the year to both thank and ask pardon. We are at the seventh day of the Christmas octave and like Mary need to keep and ponder all in our hearts. How has Jesus come to me this week, this year? How is Jesus with me today?
The Gospel is from the Prologue to John's Gospel: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God....He came to waht was his own but his own people did not accept him...Ant the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father's only-begotten Son, full of grace and truth...From his fullness we have all received..."
let us make this a day of prayer to thank for the graces received during the year and to plan, with Jesus and Mary, the New Year.
