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.
