What a wonderful way to start a New Year!

I sponsor two children in Mexico.  What an enriching experience.  I am able
to get messages to him at any time.  I was able to send a Christmas gift,
too.  And if I'd like to visit him someday, that is possible as well.  All
it costs is $18 a month.  I've already received a photo of my child and a
letter from him.  If you're interested in learning more . and seeing a photo
of my child, just follow the link from my Web Site: www.frpat.com

friends.  We'll be happy to remember your prayer intentions when we visit
Guadalupe, at daily Mass and at the many Churches we'll visit.  Just submit
your intention using the handy form linked from:

"Jesus straightened up and said to the woman caught in adultery, 'Woman,
where are they? Has no one condemned you?'  She said, 'No one, sir.' And
Jesus said, 'Neither do I condemn you. Go your way, and from now on do not
sin again.'"  ~John 8:10-11

In the new year, I can live one day at a time.  I can make each day one of
preparation for better things ahead.  I need not dwell on the past or the
future, only on the present.  I can bury every fear of the future, all
thoughts of unkindness and bitterness, all my dislikes, my resentments, my
sense of failure, my disappointments in others and in myself, my gloom and
my despondency.  I can leave all these things buried and go forward, in this
new year and this new millennium, into a new life!

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that God will guide me one day at a time in the new year.  I pray
that for each day, God will supply the wisdom and the strength I need.
