The New Year
Read 2 Corinthians 13:5
It's the end of 2009. I think it would be a good idea to spend some quiet time with God contemplating 2009, much like the friar in Brother Lew's photo.
How did you do with your Resolutions from last year? Let's examine your conscience. You can go through the Ten Commandments like Catholics do before the Sacrament of Reconciliation. But look at your relationship with the Lord in 2009.
When were you close and when were you far? Why?
I bet you were close during the Arise Together in Christ sessions. What does that tell you?
Spending some time alone with God should be part of your daily life. Schedule some time every day; that should be your New Year's Resolution for 2010. Pray for the grace to do just this in the year ahead. I'll pray for you and you pray for me.
BTW, the reference for the Ten Commandments is Exodus 20: 1-17.
Have a blessed New Year.
