Happy New Year and Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God!
In the secular world, Happy New Year!
In the world that matters, this is the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Today, is a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics: meaning get thee to a Mass!!!!
I used to go to a place that allowed folks to get up on a mic and tell what they wished for/resolved for the coming new year. This practice is NOT Mass, this is not even BEING Church (whatever). This practice is NOT giving glory to God, it's giving glory to your self. Even then, I hated it. Of course, I don't like open mic anywhere. Too many opportunities for long-winded bozos to get up and talk about themselves for 10 minutes before they get to the point. What is the point? Oh, yeah, they are the point. Ok.
The point of Holy Mass and the point of worship and prayer is NOT you.
