New years day is the feast of the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God. It is a Holy day of Obligation. Masses will be at 6:00 pm on New Years Eve and at 10:00 on New Years Day. The first reading is from Numbers: Numbers 6:22-27. It is a blessing. The Responsorial Psalm is Psalm 67:2-3, 5, 6, 8. The response is "May God bless us in his mercy.". The second reading is from St. Paul's letter to the Galatians: Galations 4:4-7. The gospel is from Luke: :16-21.
We are reminded in the gospel that Mary kept all that had happened in her heart. This is also when Jesus was officially given the name that the angel Gabriel had given to Mary for her Child at the Annunciation. On this great feast we honor Mary for her unfailing YES to God.
Most of us make resolutions for the New Year. This year make one of your resolutions something to say "YES" to God. Make it small and attach it to something you already do so that you will remember to do it and be able to keep doing it all year. Perhaps when you first put your feet on the floor in the morning, you can pray "Thank you for this wonderful new day you are giving me" or "I offer today to You." or "Bless my family today." Instead, you might start a habit of giving thanks before eating if you do not already do that. Or you might forgive someone you have been angry with during the day and bless them before going to bed. Or restart a practice that you used to do. If you forget one day, just do the practice when you remember it even if it is thanking God for the meal or snack you ate 2 hours ago. Remember that tomorrow is another day to let God into your life and say "YES" to him like Mary did. Ask her for help with your chosen practice as she is always ready to help you follow her Son more closely.
Since we are not able to hold either in person or virtual religious education programs for children at this time due to the pandemic, I will be regularly posting suggestions to help you in your own faith journey and to help you teach your children.
Today I have 2 suggestions:
The first is to read and work with the readings for next Sunday. This may involve drawing, skits, songs or whatever will make them come alive for you. Next Sunday's readings are Ezekiel 18:25-28, Psalm 25:4-5, 6-7, 8-9 with the response being: "Remember your mercies, O Lord", Philippians 2:1-11 and the gospel Matthew 21:28-32.
The second is about prayer. Please take time to thank God for all his wonderful blessings. Teach your children to actually thank God. If nana gives you a gift, you don't just say "I'm grateful for-----" you say "Thank you, nana, this is wonderful" and give her a big hug. In the same way we need to say some thing like "Thank you , God, for -----." Enthusiasm in thanking is like the big hug, but perhaps a child would like to make a drawing or a dance or a song as well. For example, I can say "Thank you, God, for giving me eyes to see all the wonderful colors you have made" and perhaps draw a rainbow.
