This January, when making your resolutions for 2011, don’t forget to include the most important type of goals for your life: the spiritual ones.
Perhaps you can commit to a deeper prayer life, more time spent in the adoration chapel, more frequent self-sacrifice (like fasting), attending daily Mass more often, etc.
On January 1st, Our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI reminded religious leaders around the world of the commitment that must be made to continually seek peace among nations. “I invite all of you to join in heartfelt prayer to Christ the Prince of Peace for an end to violence and conflict wherever they are found,” the Holy Father declared. This year, let us all incorporate prayers for peace into our ‘spiritual plans’ so that we may do our part to spread God’s love and peace in our world today.
