Just a Thought

Having began a New Year, for many it is a time to make new resolutions and reflect a little on our lives. Give time to the lonely and elderly … Seek out a forgotten friend … Share some treasure … Give a soft answer … Encourage Youth … Apologise if you are wrong … Try to understand … Think first of someone else … Appreciate … Be kind … Be gentle … Laugh a little …Laugh a lot more … Express gratitude … Pray … Go to Mass … Mend a quarrel … Welcome the stranger … Gladden the heart of a child … Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth … Thus may the celebration of our Mass be a real expression of Christian community living … Speak your love … Speak it again … And speak it still once again … And allow the Child King to fill your heart with Christmas Joy throughout 2010. WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY, HOLY AND A PEACEFUL 2010
