Resolution: Becoming Authentically Catholic

The Christmas octave draws to a close, but the Christmas season continues. The new year is often a time for planning large changes in life such as a job, residence, or financial goals; pledges to improve health and wellness; plans for diet, exercise, and more recently Eastern religious practices such as mindfulness are common. Yet our Catholic faith has always provided the lifestyle by which we will best flourish because true flourishing only comes by ordering our goals towards God.

Perhaps the best and most proper New Year’s resolution is simply to become authentically Catholic.
