Happy New Year!
“At the beginning of the New Year, I wish everyone peace,
which is the synthesis of all that is good.”
A prayer to welcome the new year:
Lord God, you have blessed us in Christ Jesus and have called us to be one in faith through him. Continue to lead and guide us in our efforts to dialogue with one another and heal us of all that divides us. May your grace transform us in heart and mind and impel us to live our lives differently; that the Gospel may always be at the center of our lives and that we may bring glory to your most holy name. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
