Tonight so many stay up to see the New Year begin. I will not be one to do so, but have relished a day of prayer to bring close to 2018 and prepare for 2019.
It has not been an easy year for our world. So many tragic happenings, so many natural disasters, so many displaced people, so many killings, so many suicides, so much hunger and suffering in all parts of our world. How much we need the love and compassion of the Heart of Jesus in our lives! How can we make the world better this year by our lives?
I am convinced of the power of prayer. We begin the new year with a Feast of Mary. Let us ask her to help us to make the world a better place; let us ask her to teach us how to love and spread joy to those around us. New Year's Eve is a time to renew our resolutions to do good, work for peace, and give love to all!
