On New Beginnings

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to start on a blank slate?

That's a lot of what Easter is about. It’s about leaving the old and starting with the new. It’s like pruning dead branches to grow new shoots. It’s about leaving entrenched tired habits and proclivities to start better ones. Especially in our spiritual lives.

The change doesn’t have to be huge. I could start by arriving to mass on time. Or just by going to any event on time. I could also just say “Thank God for today,” before going to sleep.

The small things count a lot. Why?

Because once we’ve changed even just a small habit, we’ll have the confidence to tackle the bigger things in life. We know that surely albeit slowly, we can do it.
