Dec. 31, 2016 7th day in the Octave of Christmas)

The calendar year ends with the Gospel (John 1:1-18) that we heard at the mass During the Day on Christmas, the Prologue to the Gospel according to John. In the middle of the poetry, we hear: “He (John the Baptist) came for testimony, to testify to the Light, so that all might believe through Him.” John gave that powerful testimony. As we make New Year’s resolutions, like to lose weight, or work out more, etc., we need to make some spiritual resolutions, as well. Maybe, we could do what John did and testify to Jesus by how we live in 2017. “O Lord of new beginnings and second chances, help us to reflect your light.”
