A very happy New Year to all!
On this feast of Mary I remember that this year I finally took an interest in and learned about Our Lady of Guadalupe. I had previously ignored, for no good reason, that particular apparition but all that changed this year as I learned and was amazed by it. What I really like is how they keep finding out new things as modern technology can be used to analyze the tilma. Oh and how can I forget the next thing. I learned that praying to the saints works. They arent remote bystanders in heaven who might send flowers! Sometimes they might pull you down unexpected paths. Previously I had ignored St Teresa of Avila but this year I became a fan of hers along with St Ignatius of Loyola.
Non religious things I tried for the first time this year and found out I like include how to ride a motorbike, well my brother`s dirtbike, how to snorkel, and how to golf which it turns out Im pretty good at. These are just a few of the things I learned and discovered in the past year so Im excited to see what 2010 holds in store. I hope for everyone it is a wonderful and blessed year!
