How to Begin the Year
'We must begin the year with Christ and His holy mother. So today, with all the affection I can muster, I have recourse to the Son and the mother: O Jesus, fill our hearts with Your divine Name, so that Your gentle kindness may influence all our senses and perfume all our actions. O glorious Name, which the mouth of the Divine Father pronounced from all eternity, be ever written in our souls.' (St. Francis de Sales)
'In the beginning was the Word; the Word was in God's presence, and the Word was God.'
Painting: Nativity, Edward Burne-Jones
