The day was so full that I didn’t get to post this, so I am day late.  Today was the Feast of the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God; in the old rite it was the Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord.  We had a very challenging homily from our good priest, who wished us not a ‘Happy” New Year but a “Holy” New Year.  His challenge was to be holy as we are called to be and to let go of the superficial that seems to define happiness today. 

Being the first day of January 2009, we served Navajo tacos (thank you Karman) and were blessed to fill three tables with 23 people.  Resolution number 1–strive for holiness in all things.  Resolution number 2–pray more.  Resolution number 3–be more faithful about reaching out to friends.  Resolution number 4–spend less, make do with what I have.

I should be able to keep at least one of those resolutions–right? 🙂
