New Year's Resolutions As Catholics
New Year's resolutions are a time-honored tradition for many people, and as Catholics, we have the opportunity to make resolutions that align with our faith and help us grow closer to God.
One way to make resolutions as a Catholic is to focus on spiritual growth. This can include things like reading the Bible more regularly, attending mass more frequently, or participating in a Bible study or faith group. Additionally, Catholics can make resolutions to improve their prayer life, whether that means setting aside dedicated time for prayer each day or trying a new form of prayer such as contemplative or Lectio Divina.
Another way to make resolutions as a Catholic is to focus on living out the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. These include things like feeding the hungry, visiting the sick, and clothing the naked. Making resolutions to serve others in these ways can be a powerful way to put our faith into action and make a positive impact on the world around us.
It's also important to remember that New Year's resolutions are not just about setting goals for ourselves, but also about asking for God's help in achieving them. As Catholics, we can turn to God for strength, wisdom, and guidance as we work towards our resolutions.
As we reflect on the past year and look towards the future, let us make resolutions that align with our faith and help us grow closer to God. Whether it be focusing on spiritual growth, serving others, or asking for God's help, let us make this year one of deeper faith and deeper impact.
