On this New Year’s EVE, I invite everyone to take some prayerful reflection on the year that was and to pray for the blessings in the new year to come. The EVE of a new day (and a new year) is always the space of the in-between, the time of patiently waiting for something new to happen. It is a great time for deep reflection. As we reflect on this New Year’s EVE, we are grateful for one of the greatest gifts we have received, the gift of the NEW EVE: our Blessed Mother Mary. Tomorrow on January 1st, New Year’s Day, we will celebrate the Solemnity of Mary Mother of God at a Bi-lingual Mass at 10 am. Hope you can join us. May you, your family, and your loved ones be blessed this New Year’s EVE, and may the New EVE continue to intercede and pray for us. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
