A sound advice for 2017


Fr Mario Attard OFM Cap

The New Year event is a special occasion since it gives the possibility for a new beginning. However, as the North American essayist, lecturer and poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson, put it: “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year”.

Personally speaking I have found a sound advice in order to help me live 2017 fruitfully. Whilst reading the autobiography of Saint John XXIII, Journal of a Soul, Pope John quotes from the famous Christian devotional book written by Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ: “Certainly onthe day of judgment we shall not be asked what we have read but what we have done; not how well we have spoken but how virtuously we have lived …” (p. 104).

Lord, in 2017 help me to do more and speak less. Help me to live virtuously, on a daily basis. Amen.

Happy New Year!
