My new year’s resolutions
St. Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei, used to say:
"Instead of saying 'new year, anew life', we prefer to say: 'a new year is a new struggle, which consists in overcoming oneself and preparing to be a soul who serves. You will be souls who serve, if you stayclose to God, if you seek Him in the Bread and in the Word. Seek Him in the Eucharist and in prayer..." "Would you like to examine your conscience, personally?See how my things and your things are going. We each have to discover where our own problems lie, so that we can find a remedy, so that we can really struggle; so that all of us can intensify the interior battle wherever we need it most, with the help of God's grace."
