The Best New Year's Resolutions

Thanks to a Friend for kindly sending in the following suggestion for a good, Catholic New Year's resolution. Managing body weight and our spending/saving habits aren't the only things we should be mindful of. 

-------------------

First Friday – every First Friday of the month
With the intention, in the heart, of making reparation to the
Sacred Heart of Jesus for the sins committed against Him.

  • Go to Mass and receive communion in a state of grace


First Saturday - on 5 Consecutive First Saturdays of the Month:
With the intention, in the heart, of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the sins committed against her, her name, her initiatives and images of her.

  • Go to Confession (8 days before or after)

  • Go to Mass and Receive Communion in a state of grace

  • Say a five-decade rosary

  • Meditate on one or more of the mysteries of the rosary for 15 minutes
