New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year!

It is a tradition to give presents to our loved ones on Christmas day and to make resolutions for the new year. It is a very beautiful tradition. We love to see the joy in the eyes of the other person when the gift meets their expectations and that they truly like the gift. Sometimes we manage to guess when they are a little disappointed. Nevertheless, giving and receiving is just the custom of the season. 

Have you thought about how Jesus, the main subject of the Christmas celebration, is looking upon us and what we are offering him for his birthday? What are his expectations? What would he like the most from me? What would be the one thing that would make him happy if I am to do it for next year?

We try to think of big and difficult resolutions to try and meet for the new year and most of the times we set the goal too high that we end up disappointing ourselves. This year maybe we can keep it simple. Maybe we can just promise to put in our best effort into doing everything that we will be doing. Or maybe we can just focus on being more kind with our words when dealing with others. Or just simply adding a few more minutes to our prayer time during the week. 

We just have to remember that whatever we give to God, whether big or small, he will never complain, mainly because it will not add or take away anything from who he is or his love for us. It always reflects on back on us and how much we are willing to give and how much we will receive back in terms of blessings. Let us give him something more significant. Let it be a real sacrifice of our will. It will only help us become more worthy to be a dwelling place where he would remain for ever.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with every blessing!

‘Jesus Christ was the center of his life’

Bishop Paul Sirba laid to rest

Bishop Paul Sirba: We don’t have to remain in the cold and darkness of a world without love

Editor’s note: Bishop Paul Sirba wrote this column for the December issue of The Northern Cross shortly before his death on Dec. 1.

With the nights getting longer and the cold growing colder, it may seem counterintuitive to be thinking of new beginnings. But the expression “it is always darkest before the dawn” really comes into play — and maybe those who live in the Southern Hemisphere have a slight advantage this time of year. Our Church begins a new year with the first Sunday of Advent, Dec. 1.

Father Richard Kunst: Heaven is a gift, but hell is earned

Not long ago, I gave my weekday Mass crowd two theological statements and asked them to raise their hands if they thought the statement was correct. Here was the first one: “We can earn heaven by living a virtuous life, being faithful to the sacraments, and truly loving our neighbor as ourself.” About half the people raised their hand and nodded in agreement.
