Commemoration of the Benedictine Martyrs

Commemoration of the Benedictine Martyrs

prior's message

We have begun a new year. It is a new unit of time. Time is a reality that is given to us. It has its origins in God who created it. Really, the first thing created. As soon as light and darkness began their rhythm, time began. Time is God’s first gift to us; it has been created for us.

Now we start a new cycle of time; it is fresh, unsullied. What lies before us in the coming year is another gift of time from our faithful God. He it is who offers it to us. He places it in our hands with the tools to shape it for good and beauty. As we stand at the threshold of a new time, may we also hear and know the Spirit who gently and firmly works in and through us so that the coming year may be blessed. In this new year, we will share with the Lord as he continues the work of making all things new. Such a gift should call us to wonder how gracious and trusting our Creator is toward us.
