My New Years Resolutions

My New Years Resolutions

Published by Dr. Liza Manalo
At the beginning of each new year, we learned as children to draw up our list of "My new year's resolutions," to somehow start the year right. But we discover that though we begin each year with a bang (and a boom), keeping our resolutions is not that easy. Hence, we should limit ourselves to only about 3 very practical "points for improvement" that we should work at everyday, for perhaps a month, then next month, we come up with another 3, month after month, so that at the end of the year, we find ourselves hopefully being able to keep our resolutions, slowly, but decisively

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."
