Reflection:

The anticipatory season of Advent gave way to the celebration of the birth of Jesus.  The celebration of the feast of the Holy Family helped us to remember that Jesus grew in age, wisdom and grace.  The new year, just begun, has also reminded us that we, too are surely growing in age, perhaps in wisdom and hopefully in grace.

"In the beginning was the Word…"

It’s the last day of the year and the eve of a new one.  For many of us, this means it’s a time of reflection…a time to look back and a time to look forward.

Our Gospel today is about BEGINNINGS.  God is good at beginnings.
