December 31, 2022, Seventh Day in the Octave of Christmas

Fr. Rick’s Two-Minute Homily December 31, 2022, Seventh Day in the Octave of Christmas

John 1:1-18 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/123122.cfm

The End Comes before the New Beginning.

On this last day of 2022, where does the Lord want to make a fresh start in our lives? How appropriate that Mother Church chooses the opening Gospel of St. John with the words, “In the beginning.” And from his first letter, John writes, “It is the last hour.”

He’s got those two working together – the beginning and the last hour. What would you say the last hour is? Is it our plans, our ways of doing things? The Lord is teaching us that the last hour is when we choose and experience a new beginning in Christ Jesus every day.

That new time is right now; this is the last hour, the hour we must stop making things right our way. Now is the time for an end of our way and a new beginning of God’s Way. It’s a new beginning.

Gospel Challenge:

Before we make any New Year Resolutions, let us consider where the Lord wants to make a fresh start in our lives. If you think it, he can do it.

Peace everyone.
