At the Presentation, the Holy Family adhered to Jewish custom, not for their own sakes, but for ours so as to show us how to acknowledge the Authority that supercedes all human authority - God alone. Later in their lives, they would show us how to oppose wrongful authority even to the point of our Lord's Passion and Crucifixion.
Join 44 amazing presenters (and me) for an engaging discussion on the Pro Life movement - and how to Live Pro Life!
Baptism invites us to submit our hearts and wills to Christ, embarking on a journey of deepening love and faithfulness. What better time than now to renew our Baptismal vows? We need to recommit ourselves to living in imitation of Christ, walking in his Light and Wisdom, and rejecting Satan and his evil ways at all costs.
In years past, I'd be spending these last days before the New Year reviewing the one gone by. I found it helpful to look back and ponder important events, joys, achievements, surprises, and sorrows and evaluate how I grew spiritually over the preceding twelve months. Then I'd choose one or two things I wanted to work on in the coming year. This year, however, I find myself wondering if it's even worth reviewing 2020.
