This term is repeated twice in today’s first reading (1 John 2:18-21).

It is also the last day of the calendar year: a time when people make resolutions for the year to come.

May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ give us the strength, the courage, the fortitude, the wisdom, the knowledge, the joy, and the love to live the way He wants us to live at this hour and for whatever hours or years we have left.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, be merciful to me – a sinner.
