Most, if not all of us, would hope for a “better” year, whether that means one that moves us closer to our aspirations of a more happy and fulfilling life, or one that will, at least, minimise the obstacles towards attaining this.
While this may be logical enough, we cannot assume that everyone knows how to go about realising this. Hopefully, this reflection can be of some help.

Catholics are called to bring the light of Christ to their families and to society, and to be witnesses of what it means to be members of the family of God. “The Church is the family of families,” said Archbishop William Goh.
He was speaking at the Archdiocesan Commission for the Family’s fifth anniversary Mass held at St Joseph’s Church (Bukit Timah) on Jan 5.
The Archdiocesan Commission for the Family (ACF) helps empower families to be fully alive in loving as God loves, and becoming intimate communities and witnesses of life and love by sharing in the mission of the Church.
