New Year Blessing and a Word of Concern

I wish all of you a Happy New Year!  May it be one filled with the strength of the Holy Spirit, the Truth who is Jesus, and the providential protection of our Father.  And may Mary, the Mother of God, Theotokos, intercede for us always.

My wife and I were talking last night over dinner, and she commented that 2008 was a good year for her. That is always so good to hear. Yes, a good year all in all.

I am concerned though by the victory of those who espouse advancing abortion rights and other issues contrary to our pro-life values.  The culture of death is present, and seems on the rise.  This culture is evil. We must overcome it.

I want to be clear, I am not saying anyone person is evil.  I am especially not saying President-elect Obama is evil.  I am just commenting how evil uses any opportunity it can to move into human anxiety and work its way, thwarting life and goodness.

May God generously bless our new government leaders with his wisdom, strength, prudence and presence!

May God bless us and keep us.  May he let his face shine on us and be gracious to us. May God look upon us kindly and give us a year of peace. Amen!
