As the clocks ticks away, I can’t help looking back on the year that was: a year full of ups and downs and challenges at every nook and corner. That an infinitesimal virus could hold the world hostage goes on to show how helplessly small proud humans truly are in the order of the universe. We are invited to appreciate the mystery of life and to realise that God is the overarching reality.

Here we are, on the threshold of 2021! There is a lot to be thankful for and a lot to be hopeful about. As we look back on 2020 and forward to 2021, St Paul helps put things in perspective: “We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God.” (Rom 8:28)

That’s so very true. When we love God all things begin to fall in place, all things begin to make sense.

Happy New Year to all my esteemed readers!
