The new year invites us to start over.
Start to diet again.
Start to organize your papers, office, closet
Start to exercise more
It is the time of year that invites us
to do it different this time.
To be different
St. Benedict’s wisdom beckons through the ages,
reminding us that always we can begin again.
Remember that we can begin again
not only each year
but each day
each hour, if we need to…
May our guiding star,
be the one that hangs over a manger,
blazes into our imaginations
scorches our spirits
Let it be the one that turns us
again and again,
orienting us each time
toward the Light
that is both map
