At the outset of 2014, may we begin this New Year with confidence in God’s goodness and never-failing help! As St. Paul writes in the letter to the Romans: We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose…. He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, will he not also give us all things with him? Thanks be to God for this amazing promise. Te Deum Laudamus!
