My spiritual New Year’s resolutions are as follows:

  1. Pray more.  Daily Rosary, Daily Mass, Evening Prayer, Morning Offering, mental prayer.
  2. Read more. In Conversation with God, Lectionary, Saint of the Day, Catechism in a Year, Popes in a Year, St. Thomas’s Summa Theologica, Dante’s Divine Comedy.
  3. Do More. Volunteer more regularly and more often, e.g., at St. Margaret Hall and neighboring parishes.
  4. Drink Less.  Two per day is plenty.
  5. Write more.  Daily journal, essays and op eds, and occasional blog posts (I realize blogging is somewhat passe these days).
