For many of us, writing a New Year's resolution has become a tradition. For some, the resolutions are taken as a challenge to better themselves but for others they are just another set of promises that are meant to be broken. Whether we write a New Year's resolution or not, 2020 must be welcomed with enthusiasm to deepen our faith. Year 2019 has seen the conclusion of the Year of Prayer, Penance and Reparation for our Diocese. It should have inspired us to usher love and healing through a new lively faith this 2020. The challenges of the past year have strengthened us, bonded our families, enriched marriages, created friendships and fortified our Christian communities in Christ - St Mark, St Mary and Holy Trinity.
Let us turn to the Blessed Mother of God, Mary most holy for protection this New Year. She has embraced us in the past year with the tenderness only she can give as the Mother of the Church. This year, let us continue to consecrate ourselves to her together with our family and community.
I greet you all a Blessed New Year and may the good work the Lord has begun in us carry through to completion with fruitful harvest of faith, hope and love.
God bless you all and your family this season of great joy!
