Happy New Year! The first day of January is a two-fold celebration for us Catholics. We ring in the New Year with gratitude for the year that is past with all its blessings and look forward to the year that is just beginning and hope for prosperity, good health and peace. But today we also celebrate the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God. We honor her through whom we have received our Savior Jesus Christ. What a wonderful role model and example we have in Mary! On this day, let us use Mary as the model for our New Year resolutions:
May this new year of 2017 be a time of grace and peace and joy! God bless you!
