Every year of Grace starts with Advent. Every Advent begins by recalling the end. The coming of the Son of man is both the beginning and the end. Christ makes all things new.

Today is a new beginning. As each year passes, every Christian is invited to renewal in Faith, hope and love.

O God, may this new year of Grace be a time of renewal and healing for me and those I love. Set my heart on fire for the Good News.
