Today is the “other” New Years Eve. You know - the one that precedes the onset of Advent, the minor penitential season. How will you “ring out” the old liturgical year and welcome the new?
It seems to me to be a good time to reflect on the spiritual progress (or regress) of the past year and plan strategies for the new. I made four resolutions this year on retreat. I read them almost every day. If I can be faithful to them, I’ll be thankful. I count on the help of my guardian angel and patron saints to help. May Advent be a blessing for all of us as we invoke Our Lady Help of Christians.
