Happy New Year?

So, I would like to wish everyone a happy new year (without skipping over the fact that the Church calendar says today is the solemnity of the "Holy Mother of God" first; religious comes before civic!). Yes, I know that there might not seem to be much hope that this new year will be better than the last, but we cannot allow ourselves to sink into hopelessness.


I want everyone to remember one thing above all else: Jesus Christ, the King of the Universe, is still on His throne, seated at God's right hand. Nothing has knocked Him off. Nothing can knock Him off. He is still in charge and that means that He is still conquering His enemies (look at 1 Corinthians 15:25; really, right now!) for us and will do so until the end of time.


So then, it can be a happy new year, precisely because of our wonderful Lord. Take heart, Jesus is the King of kings!
