New Year Greetings for 2023
“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God.” (Romans 8:18-19) These words of the Apostle Paul sum up so very well the feelings that dwell within us on the threshold of a new year. We carry with us sufferings and trials, sometimes even bereavement that do not magically disappear when the page of the calendar is turned. But here, Saint Paul invites us to broaden our perspective and understanding by converting our heart into one of faith and hope. Our lives, with all that they entail, of joy and suffering, of hopes and dreams, are filled by the Holy Spirit who guides us on the paths, leading us to the promise of eternal happiness.
