2020 – Resolutions / habits

From school days we have heard and been told that January is the month for making resolutions, to become better persons. After serious and genuine attempts at varied resolutions, I admit to being unable to sustain the initial enthusiasm and fervour beyond the first month, ending up feeling guilty.

Now, thinking about it, it could be that I went about it the wrong way, that is, relied on my own strength instead of doing what the Psalmist says “Commit your way to the Lord; put you trust in Him and LET HIM ACT” (Ps. 37:5)

In the course of my walk with Jesus, I adopted the following two habits; the fruit of which is peace and stability for me.

The word ‘Epiphany’ means the manifestation of a God in human form. Epiphany celebrates not only the adoration of the Babe of Bethlehem by the wise men from the East but also our own call to Christ in the gift of faith and our surrender to Him in response of faith. We shall be united with all men of goodwill who are seeking to find Jesus in their daily lives; we shall pray with them and for them that their search and our search for Jesus in our life today and every day of our life may be successful.

St. John Bosco (DON BOSCO)

John Bosco, popularly known as Don Bosco was born in CASTELNOUVO, Italy to Margarita Occhiena and Francesco Bosco on 16th August 1815. His Father died when he was just two years old. So, his mother had to raise the family of three boys all by herself. His mother was fondly called by all as Mama Margaret. She worked hard to give the real values to her children. At her knees, John first heard the voice of the master calling him for a special assignment. As years passed, John told his mother that he would be priest. As a young child he had the Charisma of attracting young children to him. He learnt the tricks of magic from travelling showmen. He walked the tightrope, he opened the carnival show, and the only admission fee was to recite the rosary by all spectators. By 1835 at 20 years he joined the Seminary, excelled in studies, made friends with many or countless people, from many walks of life. Amongst them was Fr. Catasso, his confessor who understood him and helped him to interpret God’s plan.
