As we begin the Year 2023, we celebrate the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Every New Year gives us yet another opportunity to give thanks for all of the ways that God has blessed us in the past year and to look forward with hope for all the blessings to come. Let us, therefore, begin the New Year with great expectation and fervor.

It is time for us to reflect and plan with the help of God what would be good and better for us personally and for our family. I wish and pray that with the blessings of God and the protection of our Blessed Mother all your plans would be fulfilled as you desired and that the year 2023 may brighten your life with happiness and peace.

Let us not forget that true happiness is obtained through acts of kindness that we do to our loved ones, our friends, our neighbors and particularly to those in need of our help.

God is our strength. Let him be the strong foundation of our life, so that we may not stumble when things go bad. With God as our leader and light to our path, let us begin the year 2023.

God bless you

Fr. Arul Joseph V.
