Live a New Life

January 15, 2018

At the beginning of this New Year, it is good to recall that our faith in Jesus Christ is all about newness of life. The encounter with “God-with-us” makes everything new in us, over and over again. The Reign of God is about newness. The Resurrection is about newness. Pentecost is about newness. Baptism is about newness. Reconciliation is about newness. The list goes on.

No wonder that in her Seventh Counsel, St. Angela Merici encourages her readers to live a new life! Let’s walk by faith in this New Year. Let’s grow together into the realization that newness is not reserved to January 1st only, but is the pattern for our Christian way of life each and every day.
