Happy New Year

Bellow is part of an article I wrote for the Knights of Columbus newsletter, I hope you enjoy it.
Now that we are in the beginning of the year I’m sure that a few of us have started our New Year resolutions, like losing a little weight or quitting a vice. This is good to do, but as we know the most challenging part of this resolution is that it is not something that can happen overnight, rather it is a thing that takes progress, sometimes even years, and this can be hard to deal with. So, what usually happens is that people have a great resolution and then slip up one day, and never get back to working on their resolution.
Of course the main resolution that we should make is to be more like Christ in everything we do. However, we know that we are going to fail at this many times in our life. So, what I would encourage you to do is to make this resolution every morning when you wake up; to be like Christ in everything you do that day. What being a Christian entails is not only that we believe in Christ, but that we follow Him and try to be like Him. Every day we have to recommit to being a Christian, and make it our goal to be like Christ. May this New Year be full of many blessings and may you truly grow closer to Christ.
