Blessed New Year to All!
How to begin. We have so much chaos in the world and in the Church. This is a great time to be alive! We are called to be magnanimous in virtue and we can not acquire that without the Church...Her Sacraments...Her Tradition...Her Devotions. We are called to be sons and daughters of the One True God and fight for souls now more than ever. (Jesus, Mary, I love you ....save souls!)
We can walk confidently with Our Lady; She will always bring us to Her Son! If we are not consecrated to Jesus through Mary and we do not live that consecration; we will be subject to so many temptations that we may not remain steadfast in our Faith.
Below is a homily done in Advent but is perfect for the start of the new year. May we trust in the path of the Catholic Church that God has given to us with all of its treasures! May we not find ourselves slumping over the scandals that are all around us. May we take our banner with the words "Jesus and Mary" and go into battle like Joan of Arc with complete confidence that all is either willed by God or allowed by God.....and may we fight the good fight as St. Paul says we are to do! KNOW WE ARE ON THE WINNING SIDE!
Blessed New Year to all of you!
