Dear Fellow Serrans and Followers,
Happy new year! As we conclude a snowy and bitterly cold Christmas season, let us turn our thoughts to the new year.
2017 was, to say the least, a challenging year. We continue to live in a world of political conflict, dangerous unrest and persecution, including Christians in many places. Seldom before have our prayers been needed more.
Our faith should remain the rock on which we stand every day. Our love of God, our families, our friends, and our neighbors in need should never waiver...as well as that for the Church, the focal point of our religious expression.
We are guided by our priests, deacons, and religious, the lifeblood of the Church. And while we undertake to improve our own lives in the new year, let us maintain our strong support of seminarians everywhere...the future foundations on which the Church will thrive.
God bless you in this new year. May you and your families, both near and far, find love and joy as 2018 dawns around us.
