A Beginning of A New Year

It is necessary to keep it a holy year with full purity and chastity. Let us start a new demeanor as St. Paul the Apostle said: 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; 
old things have passed away; behold, all things 
have become new.  Now all things are of 
God, who has reconciled us to Himself through 
Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
(2 Corinthians 5:17-18) 
Isaiah the prophet said:

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn.

(Isaiah 61:1-2)

David the prophet said: 

You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.

(psalms 65:11)

We ask the Lord to forgive us our sins and help us according to His will with the intercessions of our holy mother Saint Mary and all the Martyrs and saints.
