Spirit and Life: Make Personal Holiness Your New Year's Resolution


For most of us, a new year is an occasion of both great regret and great hope: regret, that we so often failed in the resolutions we made the previous year; hope, that in the upcoming year we may yet make up for lost time and become the person we hope, and God intends us to be.

Our hearts taste a bitter irony in these moments when our gaze is turned backwards, and we are forced to contemplate the choices we have made. The irony is this: that the things that we so often treated as the most important were not, in fact, the things that we truly know are the most important.

Few of us review the previous year and lament that we did not spend more time watching television, eating junk food, lounging about on the couch, surfing the Internet, arguing with one’s spouse...

Sincerely yours in Christ,
